Fluffy Bakeshop Icing

1 1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup margarine (not butter)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or your choice of flavor extract or extracts if you would like more then one flavor.


Mix milk with cornstarch. Cook until thick, stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.

Cream shortening, margarine and sugar. Beat with mixer for 10 full minutes.

Combine second mixture with the first. Add vanilla extracts; beat both together until creamy. The mixture should look like whipped cream.

Cake should be completely cool before frosting.

This makes enough for a 13 x 9-inch cake.

Hi Kiddiekakes!

Did you try this recipe yet? It looks yummy and I think I wanted to give it a shot I just thought I'd see how yours turned out. Did you do any piping with it or just ice the cake?

BTW, I LOVE Calgary! I spent 2 years there from 1996-1998...best 2 years of my single life!

Ladycake:

You do have a great website with some fantastic recipes. Keep up the great work!

Ladycakes,
Can you also decorate with this icing or is it just for covering a cake?

I made the recipe last nite and used it on my first ever cupcake cake. It has a very light texture but is sort of 'springy'. It spread very well and I could use the hot knife technique to smooth it. Unfortunately it didn't take colour very well. It probably would have had I added it when it was in the mixer rather than by hand afterwards. When I piped it the colour sort of separated from the icing so it was streaky. My stepkids come tonite so I will have my definitive review as to how they like the taste this evening.

Good recipe and I will be adding this to my collection!

Thanks again Ladycakes!

in my mind, butter cream is oly buttercream if it has real butter in it.

1 cup unsalted butter
4-6 cups icing sugar
milk
vanilla
salt

make sure the butter is soft. mix the butter untill it is fluffy, then add the icing sugar slowly, beating it a lot after each adition. Add vanilla, add milk if it gets stiff. add salt if it's too sweet. The trick is to whip it a lot for a long time. It doesn't work by hand, I'd say you have to use an electric mixer.
