Butter Cream Frosting

Here is another great frosting. I use this mainly for kid stuff (birthday cakes, cupcakes..) It is a little on the sweet side. This may be a little to sweet for some adults tastes. I love it though!

3/4 c. unsalted butter

1/4 shortening (Crisco)

1/2 c. milk

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

2 pounds powdered sugar

food coloring (optional)

1- Place butter, shortening, milk, vanilla, slat and 1 pound of sugar in a large bowl

2-Beat at low speed until combined, gradually add the other pound of sugar

3- Stop and scrape sides of your bowl

4- Beat on high or until your mixture is light and fluffy

5-Add desired food coloring, combine well

6- Keep covered with plastic wrap to prevent crusting

*Note: This can be made a few days in advance, just be sure to keep it covered completely. Before using it, mix it for about a minute with your hand mixer.
