How to Make Buttercream Icing

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter and crisco until smooth, add vanilla or whatever flavoring you like.
  2. Beat in powdered sugar one cup at a time until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add milk a little at a time until desired consistency.
    If you are coloring it, add small amounts of paste color until you get the color you want. Remember the colors deepen as it sits.
