Cool picture FS; love the polkadot background :) What recipe did you use for the peppermint frosting?

3/4 Cup butter @ room temperature
5 Cups powdered sugar
1 Cup instant milk
1/2 Cup half & Half

I like to then separate the frosting into 1 cup amounts to add flavors or extracts. I used 1/8 teaspoon of pure peppermint extract and four drops of all-natural blue food coloring for 1 cup of frosting. I also made a strawberry frosting yesterday.
