  1. In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, cream the butter on medium speed until softened, and then slowly add in the powdered sugar, about one cup at a time. Add in the vanilla, and then the pinch of salt.
  2. Pour in milk one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is achieved.

Tip: thicker icing is best for cupcakes, while thinner icing can be used on cakes.
