This is not a light-weight frosting. This is the famed "Cookie Cutter," "Beth's Kake Kreations," and "All by U" frosting recipe that was used and passed down as the businesses traded hands. This is my GO-TO frosting for decorating!

How to Make Buttercream Frosting/Decorator Icing

Step-by-Step

  1. This recipe is a classic buttercream that kept getting passed to cake-makers in Marquette County. Go ahead and tweak it to your own tastes (as to how you remember it), but this is the original.

    Cream together, then whip until light and fluffy:

    1-1/2 C. Shortening

    1 tsp. Salt

    1 T. Vanilla (clear)

    3/4 tsp. Butter Flavoring

    3 T. dry Dream Whip

    1 tsp. Almond flavoring

    To the above mixture, add:

    1 lb. sifted Powdered Sugar

    1/4 C. Water

    Beat together. Then add:

    1 lb. sifted Powdered Sugar

    1/4 C. Water

    Beat Well.

    Icing keeps in the refrigerator for three months. Store in a tightly-covered container. Tinting/coloring is up to you!
