This is the icing recipe from my good friend Sylvia. She makes the best cakes and this is what she always ices them with.
- Using an electric mixer, cream butter, shortening and vanilla. Gradually add the sugar 1 cup at a time, and beat well on medium speed (scrape sides and bottom of bowl often).
- Once all the sugar is mixed in, add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
- Keep refrigerated and covered until needed.
