Put 3 tablespoons butter or margarine into a mixing bowl and beat with a whisk or mixer at low speed until fluffy. Add about a cup of sifted powered sugar and continue beating.
Add 1 tablespoon milk and 3/4 teaspoons vanilla, an additional 1 1/3 cup (or so) of powdered sugar and continue beating. Add more milk if you need it to make the frosting smoother.
This recipe makes enough to frost a one-layer cake. I usually add an ounce of cocoa and make it chocolate.
