OK, back to the icing - I've gotten to the point where I just go by looks and dump stuff in, but this is basically what I use: 2 c. hi-ratio shortening, 1 T. vanilla, 1 T. butter flavor and 1 T. creme bouquet or princess emulsion, 2 lbs. powdered sugar (a little more if I want stiffer icing), maybe 3-4 T. of milk and 1/2 c. melted white chocolate chips. Mix up your icing first, then add in the melted white chocolate at the end and mix well.
Depending on what I'm using the icing for, I'll put 1 or 2 T. of meringue powder in it. If it's just going under fondant I don't mess with the meringue powder but if I'm piping then I use it.
