    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is similar to bakery frosting and so much better than any canned! --- for extra fluffy frosting use heavy cream and make certain to beat for at least 3-5 minutes and remember to sift the confectioners sugar before using. For flavor and color you can add 1-2 envelopes 3-grams each, Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Flavor Mix, any flavor desired.

      Once again you remind me why I always look for your name when I search out a recipe. Kittencal has actually become synonymus with awesome in our house; in fact, when my 9-year-old raved about how yummy this frosting is, I said "It's a Kittencal," to which he responded with a shrug, "That explains it." :) YUMMY!!!!

      I honestly don't know how this can have such great reviews...The icing is too too sweet and greasy...It does hold its shape well if you are piping a border..hence the 1 star but overall taste is DISGUSTING!!

      Sorry, but...YUCK! It was all nasty like eating WAY to vanilla-y crisco. Totally gross. This was my first time making a frosting recipe that called for shortening and I thought it sounded weird but this had such great reviews so I tried it. Nope. Never again will shortening go in my frosting.
