1 2/3 cups sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

3 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
About 2 tablespoons milk
Frosts one 13 x 9-inch cake or fills and frosts two 8- or 9-inch cake layers.
[Note: To fill and frost three 8-inch layers, use 4½ cups powdered sugar,
½ cup margarine, softened, 2 teaspoons vanilla and about 3tablespoons milk. Even this amount is a bit skimpy and liquid needs adjustmentor icing is too dry.]
Other possible frostings
Whichever icing you choose, make about 3 cups for a two-layer, nine-inch cake. Use one-and-one-half times the amount of ingredients in any of the above recipes to adequately cover a three-layer cake.
