I got this recipe some place on the internet. It makes a nice buttercream frosting for wedding cakes. I really like this frosting recipe it does taste just like basic wedding cake frosting. You can use dark vanilla extract but it will discolor the frosting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together softened butter, shortening and milk with an electric mixer.
  2. Next add the clear vanilla extract.
  3. Then add the powdered sugar slowly.
  4. Note: 2 pounds of powdered sugar is 8 cups.
