2 sticks butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
4 cups powdered sugar
In the bowl of a mixer, beat butter, vanilla and milk on medium until smooth and well blended. Slowly add powdered sugar and beat on medium-low until just mixed. Increase speed to high and beat for two minutes.
Set aside a very small amount of frosting and color it black. To the rest, add a drop of pink and a drop of tan, or any beige-ey color.
Using a large open star tip, pipe
the beige/tan frosting, spiraling it around a few times. Using a round
tip (I used #5) pipe a sharp tip in black (Hold your piping bag at a 90
degree angle...squeeze a good dab of frosting then slowly pull up as you
continue piping. When it gets to desired height, stop piping FIRST,
then lift tip up)
