Butter Cream Icing

Macey's big day is tomorrow. I thought while I was sitting and taking a rest from getting party stuff ready I would post the recipe for icing I use to decorate my cakes. It's pretty simple and it comes from Wilton.

~ 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
~ 1/2 cup butter (I use stick butter)
~ 1 tsp. CLEAR Vanilla Extract
~ 4 cups (1lb.) sifted confectioners' sugar (I don't sift)
~ 2 Tbls. milk

Cream butter and shortening with electric mixer.


{It's more fun if you have a helper} :D



Add Vanilla.


Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time.


Then clean up the sugar you spilled. Add the milk in last.


Don't forget to taste it and make sure it taste GOOD!


There you go.  I'll post of her birthday picks sometime after tomorrow.  Can't believe my BABY is 3!
