I use sainsbury's slightly salted organic
250g butter to 500g icing sugar and a splash of milk.

ooooooo yum thats way more incing sugar than I use. I do 50/50. Will try adding loads more!

I think that is why I need a splash of milk to soften it up a bit. grin

I do it by taste. Chunk of soft butter in the food processor and add icing sugar til it tastes just right. Sometimes add some proper vanilla essence or some melted chocolate.
