Using a spoon, test the consistency of the frosting. If it sticks to the spoon and runs off slowly, it is the right consistency. If it pour off quickly, it needs to be thickened.
Thicken the frosting by adding 1 tbsp confectioners or icing sugar. Stir, then test the consistency again.
Keep adding icing sugar, 1 tbsp at a time until it is the desired consistency.
