This is a very quick and super easy frosting recipe that tastes great. Great for busy moms. The ingredients are very easy to remember since it's an equal amount of everything. I haven't experimented with using butter or margarine instead of shortening. Would love to hear from anyone who tries that because I'm sure it would be healthier.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in a glass bowl, except for vanilla extract.
  2. Microwave on low heat stirring and checking every few seconds until it is evenly melted. (Original recipe said to do this in a saucepan over low heat, but I've always used the microwave and it's come out fine.).
  3. Remove from microwave once melted and stir again .
  4. When slightly cool, add vanilla extract and frost cake.
  5. (I once poured this frosting while it was slightly warm onto a warm cake because I was in a hurry and it turned into a beautiful chocolate glaze.) Super easy. I don't think I've found an easier recipe than this that tastes so good.
