1. Whip the room temperature unsalted butter on a medium high speed with a whisk attachment of a stand mixer or hand mixer for 5-7 minutes. The butter should lighten in color as you incorporate air into it.
2. Add in the vanilla extract and salt, and mix on a low speed until incorporated.
3. Slowly mix in the sweetened condensed milk, adding ¼ of the can at a time, mixing on a medium speed.
4. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula throughout the process. The sweetened condensed milk sometimes pools at the bottom of the bowl, so be sure to scrape all the way to the bottom. ♡
5. If you frosting is broken or not stiff enough, you can add in powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time to and bring it together.
