thanks for helping.
Slightly off topic, and I'm sure you copied the recipe as you saw it written, but this is what bugs me about recipe writing.....
How big is one "box" of sugar?
How much is a "stick" of crisco?
water and salt mix? Is there a ratio to that? 1.5 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of water? vice versa?
I use a ratio of 1-1/3 cups of fat (crisco) to 2 lbs of p.sugar. I've made icings that used more crisco and I agree ... it's disgusting.
When I read the subject line, the thought that went thru my head was "you're using too much crisco and/or not enough sugar".
