Whitney's notes for this recipe:
For years I have searched and searched and searched...and even did some more searching to find a frosting that was identical or almost identical to the frosting you taste from a bakery. And I finally found one! This one right here! You have to try it! I'm tired of the same ole' "butter, powdered sugar and vanilla" type frosting. This frosting can actually be a little expensive because it calls for 5 different extracts. But it's so well worth it. Especially if you're really wanting that "wow factor."

Frosting that makes you go 'Mmmm..."

Lemon, orange , almond, vanilla... they're all here and they're all so delicious. A must try!

Directions

1
In a small cup, measure out water and salt. Set aside and let the salt dissolve.
2
If you have a standing mixer it is highly recommended. But a hand held mixer with a very large bowl will work also.

Cream together the Crisco and butter until well combined.
3
Add meringue powder and all the extracts and flavorings. Mix well.
4
On low speed, gradually add the powdered sugar until well combined.

It will get clumpy after the whole 2lbs. has been distributed.
5
Continue on low speed and gradually add salt/water mix.

Add more water to frosting if necessary.
