1/2 cup soft Butter
2 to 3 drops of Natural Food Color
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 - 2 teaspoons water or milk
1Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Line 9-inch square pan with foil so foil extends about 2 inches over sides of pan. Grease bottom only of foil with shortening or cooking spray.
