Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

It's birthday time for my niece again! She's the big 11 this year - how time flies!

Made some King Arthur GF Chocolate Cupcakes, then filled and topped them with this Fluffy Peanut Butter frosting recipe that I found on

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons milk, as needed

Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.
Note: I doubled the recipe and used about 3.5 cups of sugar, and no milk.
