Posted by sregan65My good friend Rosario71 [here on cake central] recently shared this recipe with me. She's tried a bunch of buttercream frosting recipes and says this is the BEST!
Homemade Buttercream Frosting
- 1/2 cup - Crisco shortening [lard] 1/2 cup - Butter or Margerine 1 tsp - clear vanilla extract [clear- otherwise the brown tint will show] 4 cups - SIFTED powdered sugar 2 tbsp -milk
- Using a blender: Cream butter and Crisco shortening; Add vanilla; add sugar one cup at a time.
- Mix will seem thick / lumpy. Add milk until frosting is fluffy.
- That's it. Enjoy. Sweet and has lard. Will not win healthy award.
