Strawberry Party Frosting

Ingredients:
 
1 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
8 cups icing sugar (confectioners')
120 ml whipping cream
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon water
pinch of salt
few drops of LorAnn Strawberry Flavor Oil (to taste)
few drops of AmeriColor Electric Pink Gel Color
 
Method: 
 
Beat the butter and icing sugar in an electric mixer on low with the paddle attachment for about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla, water, whipping cream, salt, and strawberry oil, and whip on high speed until fluffy and smooth--about 4 minutes. Add colour and mix until well blended. If consistency is too thick, add more water 1 teaspoon at a time, then whip again for 30 seconds or so.
 
Makes enough to fill and frost a 3-layer (or 5-6 thin layers) 9" cake.
