My darling baby niece turned 1 month old on Saturday, so of course I had to bake her a cake. Her 3 year old brother did her a favor and blew out the candle. And then had us sing happy birthday to him and blew out another candle. Because we don't spoil him or anything.
- 2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
- pinch of salt
- 2 pounds powdered sugar
- 5 drops orange oil (or about 1 teaspoon orange extract)
- 5-7 tablespoons water
Beat together butter, salt, and orange oil. Slowly beat in powdered sugar. Add in water one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Frost cake.
