Simple, delicious and as a RI maker, ingredients you've probably already got!:
250g salted butter (can use unsalted, but add 1/2 tsp salt if you use that)
750g powdered sugar
1 tbsp flavouring of your choice
2-3 tbsp water
Whip all the above together in a stand mixer on medium for 5 minutes. Colour as you desire.
