  2. 2Turn the mixer to medium low, gradually add the powdered sugar, and beat until combined, about 2 minutes.
  3. 3Add the remaining ingredients and beat until the frosting is very airy and thoroughly mixed, about 2 minutes. Use immediately to frost cookies or cupcakes, or store covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.
