I'm making 120 cupcakes for a surprise party on Saturday and I'm trying to find a really good recipe for a plain vanilla frosting. I can't find the one that I've been using for so long. I have a ton of powdered sugar so it needs to use that. I would prefer that it not use a ton of butter and preferably no shortening. And if you could let me know about how many cupcakes it would frost that would be great too. Thanks for your help.
