I received this recipe from one of our local bakers. I just love it to decorate my cakes with.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and shortening with electric mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry.
  2. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Separate and tint frosting with icing colors as desired.
