READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sharon the Rocket

My husband goes bonkers over wedding cake but it has to be REAL wedding cake icing!! This is easy and is just right.

This is close to my recipe. The teaspoon of salt per pound of powdered sugar is the magic bullet. It makes the frosting not sickening sweet. I use 1/2 tsp. Wilton butter flavoring and 1 tsp. vanilla. I use water instead of milk so it can sit out at a wedding. If milk is in it, you only have a 4 hour window for food safety. You lose a lot of that time just making it so I use water. I will only use Crisco. I've tried other brands and Crisco is way better tasting in my opinion.
