Brett’s Birthday Party

It’s been a pretty busy week for the Beams so far.  Last night we celebrated our friend Brett’s birthday at a local Italian restaurant.  It was so delicious!  And I made a cake for the occasion.  The cake was from a box, but the icing was homemade.  Let me just tell you, anything with the word butter in it is dangerous.  So buttercream icing? Pretty much pure sticks of butter, but it was yum!  I used my Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook’s recipe for Vanilla Buttercream Icing

-3 sticks of butter
-16 oz of powdered sugar
-1 teaspoon of vanilla
-2 teaspoons of milk

Pretty heavy stuff right there.  But I didn’t tell the unassuming party guests how unhealthy this icing really was so everyone seemed to enjoy the cake 🙂

Especially the birthday boy!  Happy Birthday Brett!
