  • Turn mixer on low. Gradually add the sweetener a little at a time. Allow the sweetener to beat in after each addition.
  • Once fully added increase speed to medium and beat another 45 seconds or until fully combined and creamy. If frosting seems too thick add small amounts of the milk of choice until the frosting is the desired consistency. If too thin add small amounts of powdered sweetener until desired consistency
  • Frost and decorate cooled cupcakes as desired. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days
