Ingredients

1 c
light corn syrup
1 c
shortening
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
clear vanilla extract
2 lb
confectioners' sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, stir together the shortening and corn syrup. Mix in the salt and vanilla flavoring, then gradually mix in the confectioners' sugar until it is a stiff dough. If you are using a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment. Otherwise, knead by hand. If the dough is sticky, knead in more confectioners' sugar until it is smooth.
2
Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
3
To use, roll out on a clean surface that has been dusted with confectioners' sugar until it is 1/8 inch thick or thinner if you can. Drape over frosted and chilled cakes and smooth the sides down, or cut into strips to make bows and other decorations.
