 Make sure the batter is smooth by adding a cake mix to the mixing bowl and using a whisk to break up large pieces of mix. 

The same recipe will work for any flavor of cake mix you decide to use.

Make sure the butter you intend to use is soft and not in a melted form. To soften it, you can leave it out on the counter or put it in the oven for a few seconds.

The powdered sugar should be added gradually, in case it is too much, add milk.

Powdered sugar can also be alternated for milk and strawberry glaze to give you a fluffy frosting.

Bring them out to cool and you can add the decorations (cookies, Oreos, candy, sprinkles, etc)

How to make your homemade frosting –
