Adding the Sugars. Gradually incorporate the powdered sugar, continuing to beat until well combined.

Flour Time. Add the cooled flour and salt to the mixture, blending until it’s fully integrated.

Liquid Magic. Pour in the milk or cream and vanilla extract. Mix on medium speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
