Here is another frosting/icing recipe from Mrs. Wayne Jones in the 1955 Marshall Township PTA cookbook.

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp. cream
1 tsp. vanilla

Put 1 1/2 cups sugar and milk in saucepan. Put remaining sugar and half of butter in a heavy frying pan. Place both on low heat at the same time. Carmalize sugar to a dark brown color. Add gradually to sugar and milk mixture. Cook until it forms a soft ball when tested in cold water, 238 degrees. Remove from heat and cool. Add remaining butter and 1 tsp. vanilla. Add cream and beat until mixture forms proper spreading consistency.

Note: This is not a typo, the amount of butter is not listed. I have checked similar recipes and they call for 2 tablespoons of butter with 2 cups of sugar.
