Butter/Shortening Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by eBeth

This is a large batch of frosting, easily halved. Not too, too sweet. Good for cookies and cakes. Mostly I am posting it so I can always find it!!

Top Review by Doods

I have made a lot of frosting recipes for cakes and cupcakes and this is the best one I have ever made. I made 96 cupcakes for a party and got tons of compliments on the cupcakes and especially the frosting. This is the only one I will be using from now on. It is delicious!
