We all have these ingredients in our pantry. I love the tast of professional icing not the store bought stuff, so I asked around and here is what a lady that's been making cakes for years uses. And it is so easy and really good!!

  1. Add salt to the water.
  2. Mix shortening & powdered sugar together, add the water a little bit at a time. Continue to cream until you get the consistency you like.
  3. Add the extract a couple drops at a time until you get the flavor you like.**This recipe makes alot of icing, so refrigerate what you don't use.
