Buttercream Frosting
Ingredients
  • 2 cups unsalted butter (room temeperature)
  • 2 cups shortening
  • 8-12 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
  • (if you don't want a lot of frosting you can cut this recipe in half)
Instructions
  1. Beat butter and shortening until fluffy.
  2. Add in powdered sugar, cream and extract.
  3. Mix until smooth.
Notes
Shortening*
I have found that the brand name shortening is very dense and thick.
I prefer Walmart's Store brand of shortening it's lighter and fluffier and results in a lighter frosting when shortening is needed.
All butter would not create WHITE frosting.
If you frosting isn't really white depending on the color of the butter used, add a few drops of Americolor White Food Coloring.
