The shortening gives this frosting a nice, crisp exterior and a rich, buttery interior. When I saw this recipe on Cooks.com, I used it to frost "Old Fashioned Spice Cake" (#41292) and found that this recipe can frost two 13x9 cakes. Enjoy!

Tastes, good, but WAY to liquidy. Tried putting it on cupcakes. Did NOT work. Will not be using this recipe again.
