This frosting reminds me of the kind you get on bakery sheet cakes. It’s delicious, easy to pipe, and easy to spread.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup butter flavor Crisco
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
5 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup milk
In a large bowl, cream butter and shortening until light and fluffy. Add salt, vanilla, confectioners’ sugar and milk. Beat well.
The first time I made this frosting, I used regular water based food coloring and the colors came out extremely muted. Since then, I’ve used gel color and the colors have looked great.
