I use both the Wilton half butter half shortening and Dawns recipe for butter cream. If I am going for really white icing like the stripes on my American flag cake I will set some aside and use the Wilton White White in it. I also have used the White coloring to make my yellow cake lighter. I almost always use a scratch yellow cake recipe I found a few years ago, as I am allergic to soy. Adding the White coloring to the cake mix I ended up with slightly off white color that worked well for the overall appearance of the cake.

And like susanmm23 said make sure it is all vegetable shorting. I remember when I was overseas in the Coast Guard on a Deployment we got supplies on a stop in Morocco and the shortening was not all vegetable the cake itself wasnt to bad flavor wise but the icing was horrible tasting.
