Here was the recipe she told us to use for a double batch..
2 cups of shortening (crisco)
1 teaspoon of wilton clear vanilla flavor
1/2 teaspoon of wilton almond flavor
1/2 teaspoon of wilton butter flavor
14-16 teaspoons of milk or water (start with 10 tsp and increase as needed)
2 lbs of pure cane confectioners sugar (dominos)
2 tbs of meringue powder
Does anyone have a better tasting recipe that I could still get a thick consistency from?
