Let the kids go crazy decorating with all natural ingredients! Making your own icing is easy peasy and tastes so much better. It’s light, sweet and creamy. But that’s not the only reason for making your own icing….

Here’s what’s in packaged icing:

Sugar, Palm Oil, High Maltose Corn Syrup, Water, Corn Starch, Canola Oil. Contains 2% or less of: Salt, Distilled Monoglycerides, Color (yellows 5 & 6 and other color added), Polysorbate 60, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Citric Acid.

The things wrong with this list are too numerous to post, but if you have questions, just Google some of the ingredients.

Plus, you don’t need all of that when you can whip up homemade in just a few minutes. The cool thing about this recipe is that you’ll substitute powdered milk for powdered sugar!


  • 1/2 Cup
    Or 1 Stick butter from a pasture raised cow
  • 1/2 Cup
    Powdered Milk
  • 4 Tablespoons
    Real Maple Syrup
  • 3 Teaspoons
    Pure Vanilla Extract


  1. Assemble your ingredients.

    butter from pasture raised cows, organic maple syrup, vanilla, milk powder
  2. Whip the butter.

    Butter being whipped in a mixer.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients.

    Real maple syrup, dry milk powder, vanilla
  4. Your ready to ice your holiday goodies!

  5. Love this...."We're free to roam our pastures and graze outdoors. It's a great lifestyle that makes our butter udder-ly delish!"

    Cool packaging idea
Nutrition: There's really nothing that's bad for you in this recipe. The pasture raised butter is loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, there's very little maple syrup and it comes with minerals and 20 different antioxidants that sugar doesn't have....and then theres the milk and vanilla. So enjoy.
