Almond Buttercream Frosting

A little piece of heaven.  Just eat it by the spoonful when no one is watching...  Oh I mean, use to frost cupcakes, cake, graham crackers, cookies, or whatever you think would taste even better with frosting on it.

Almond Buttercream Frosting

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract

In a mixing bowl add butter and 1 cup of powdered sugar.  With an electric mixer, beat until blended.  Add in another cup of powdered sugar, the vanilla and almond extract, and 1-2 Tbsp of warm water.  Beat with the electric mixer until well blended.  Add another cup of powdered sugar with 1 Tbsp of water and beat.  Then repeat with the remaining ingredients.  Beat an additional minute until the frosting is fluffy and everything is incorporated.
