Description

I came up with this by combining several different recipes that I have tried. This one is my family's favorite. It is a variation of American Buttercream Icing and it is a crusting icing.

Ingredients

4 oz
salted butter
4 oz
unsalted butter
1 c
hi-ratio shortening
2 lb
confectioners sugar
2 t
clear vanilla extract
5 T
cold milk

Instructions

  1. Cream butter, shortening, vanilla, and milk.
  2. Add 1/2 of the sugar and mix well.
  3. Scrape down sides and add remaining bag of sugar, mix.

This makes a medium to thin consistency. Add or take away milk until you get your ideal consistency.

Notes

I use hi-ratio shortening. Crisco is too soft for my taste, and I will not use it to decorate with. If you cannot find hi-ratio shortening, use a shortening that has at least 2-3 grams of trans fat. Most generic store brands have this.
