Grocery store frosting

Want the recipe for the pink fluff on my cupcakes? This has been by far the best frosting recipe I have ever found, it taste just like that divine frosting that comes on the all of the cakes you buy at the grocery store, plus, this frosting decorates and spreads really well.

1 cup of shortening

1/2 cup of butter

1 1/2 TBS vanilla extract

2 LBS of confectioners' sugar

1/8 tsp salt

4 TBS water

In a heavy duty mixer combine butter, shortening, vanilla and water. Add the sugar and salt, beat until well mixed. Add a tablespoon or more of water if needed. Turn mixer to highest speed and let beat for 15 minutes. The longer you beat this frosting the fluffier it will be! :)

Great! Thanks for sharing. I have to bake something for a bake sale on Friday. But I'm planning on doing pound cake and baking them in loaf pans, 'cause that's easy for someone to pick up and take home. Cupcakes with mile high icing sound and looking wonderful, but they are not real handy for buying at a bake sale. I'll have to think about it. Aunt *G*
