I always just used confectionary sugar and milk with some vanilla extract. Usually I just start with a certain amount like a cup of each and if its to thick or thin i adjust accordingly and keep adding until i get to the desired amount.

Same here (+butter though). What type of cake is it for? I generally use different types of icing for different types of cake.

My mom's chocolate cake icing -

melt 1/2 stick butter
add 3 T powdered cocoa (I use Hersheys)

Mix into a slurry mixture. Add 1 t vanilla, 2-3 cups confectioners sugar and a dash of milk until you reach desired consistency. This makes enough for a 9 x 13 cake. double it to make plenty to frost a 2 layer cake.
