Recipe Monday - Orange Buttercream Frosting

I put food coloring in here because when my girls said orange frosting, they meant orange frosting. Without the false coloring it has an incredibly gentle, classy light orange tinge.

2/3 cup butter, softened
6 cups powdered sugar, divided (I ONLY USED FOUR CUPS!!!!!)
2 teaspoons freshly grated orange peel
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 to 6 tablespoons milk

Beat butter, 1 cup powdered sugar, orange peel and vanilla in large bowl until creamy.
Add remaining powdered sugar alternately with milk, beating to spreading consistency.
If necessary, add additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to get desired spreading consistency.
About 3 cups frosting.
