This is a really great fluffy white frosting --- for the best results use only whipping cream for this --- this may easily be doubled and also freezes well.


  1. In a bowl using an electric mixer, beat together the shortening, salt, vanilla and half of the icing sugar; beat until very smooth.
  2. Add in whipping cream; beat well.
  3. Add in remaining icing sugar to desired texture; beat until fluffy and creamy.

I loved this recipe, I have tried to make white frosting a couple of times using the boiling method. Of course i failed everytime. This method is a simple and tasty white frosting. I thought the shortening was going to make it taste a bit strange, but it tastes sooooo good. thanks.

WOW...This is the recipe that I've been trying to locate for the last 4 years..It's a great light frosting and I would use it to decorate my cupcakes.It's from a Duncan Hines cake box.All ingredients are the same except it called for 1/3 cup milk instead of the whipping cream
