    Your Mom's Note:

    Perfect for icing cakes and decorating :) Can sit out at room temperature. For thin (spreading) consistency icing, add 2 tablespoons light corn syrup, water or milk. For Pure White Icing (stiff consistency), omit butter; substitute an additional 1/2 cup shortening for butter and add 1/2 teaspoon No-Color Butter Flavor. Add up to 4 tablespoons light corn syrup, water or milk to thin for icing cakes

      This is the updated trans fat free version. Very creamy, easy to spread.I have used both unsalted butter and I have subbed Best Life Diet baking sticks for the butter and it yeilded a wonderful taste and a white color both times. The best thing about this recipe (besides the versatility) is the fact that it doesn't leave that waxy coating on your tongue after you have eaten it like some butter cream icings do. This is my go to recipe for all my special occasion cakes. When there are left overs it can be put in the refrigerator and spread over a basic sugar cookie recipe.
