- Turn the mixerdown to slow speed. Add the milk to the butter mixture a couple of teaspoons at a time . Once all the milk has been incorporated , turn the mixer up to high speed. Continue beating until the frosting is light and fluffy , about 5 minutes . The longer the frosting is beaten, the fluffier and the lighter it becomes.
