If you are looking for a frosting that tastes just like the frosting you get on cakes from the bakery then you will love this recipe. This is a light, creamy, fluffy frosting that spreads and pipes well. It's sweet but yummy.

  2. Add additional milk 1 tablespoon at a time and pulse until your reach the desired consistency.

After having read the other reviews and looking at the recipe I believe the problem with the recipe is that it should read 1/2 c butter OR 1/2 c butter flavor Crisco - not BOTH.

This needs about 2-3 cups more powdered sugar and regular Crisco instead of butter flavored...after those alts in the recipe I found it to be pleasing.

This frosting could be a lot more sweeter, there was too much shortening/butter in proportion to the icing sugar. It definitely needs more powdered sugar than listed.
