icing sugar, butter, couple drops vanilla essence and drop hot water. If too runny - more icing sugar, if too stiff more butter.

Real butter (yum)
Icing sugar

Mixed really well, I do mine in the mixer, so it's really fluffy.

You can always add:

Lemon juice / rind
cocoa powder
vanilla extract

to liven it up a bit.
