Recipe: simple buttercream

Thanks to recent events, we have a house full of cupcakes. 

Not a bad problem to have, I know. 

I'm not too picky about my frosting, but homemade is always waaaay better than a tub from the grocery store. 

My super simple, super yummy recipe, enough to generously frost 24 cupcakes:

1 1/2 sticks butter, softened on the counter, not melted in the microwave
6 cups powdered sugar
3 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3-ish cup half and half

Beat butter until smooth.

Add remaining ingredients until smooth. 

If it's too thick, add a bit more half and half.  If it's too watery, add more sugar.  Add food coloring to your liking.  You know the drill.

Cupcakes for breakfast?  Ya, that's how we roll.
