My friend, Jeanie is a great cook. We took a cake decorating class together and she came up with this frosting recipe that tastes incredible yet it will hold its shape for decorating.

Great frosting for cake or cupcakes. Not sugary sweet like most icings tend to be. I subbed butter for 1/2 c of the margarine, and added 1 tsp of almond flavor, then frosted my white cupcakes. I think the flavor of the icing was better after the cupcakes sat overnight.
