Sugarshack's Buttercream Icing
- 5 generous cups of hi ratio shortening ( I prefer Sweetex) 5 pounds powdered sugar flavorings to taste hot liquid Note: make the liquid by mixing one cup of hot water with one cup of powdered coffee creamer. Use only the amount you need to get the consistency you prefer.
- Cream liquids and shortening until smooth. Add powdered sugar in a slow steady stream on speed one. When all the powdered sugar is in there, go to speed 6 until very smooth. Scrape down bowl sides frequently.
