Yummy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Sherry Symmonds

I was working on my first fondant covered cake for my daughter's birthday--a feat in itself! Since I wanted everything to turn out just perfect I started searching for a good buttercream recipe to go under the fondant. The recipes I found were either for very large amounts, didn't sound very tasty, or were the kind of buttercream that would not hold up well for the purpose I needed. Therefore, I went with a half Crisco/half butter mix. I used 2 tsps of meringue powder (the equivalent of one egg white) to improve the texture. Went on beautifully.
