How to Make Homemade Butter Cream Icing

Step-by-Step

  • 1In large bowl, cream shortening and butter with electric mixer. Add vanilla or other perfered flavor. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Keep bowl covered with a damp cloth until ready to use.
  • 2For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.
  • 3For Pure White Icing (stiff consistency),omit butter; substitute an additional 1/2 cup shortening for butter and add 1/2 teaspoon No-Color Butter Flavor. Add up to 4 tablespoons light corn syrup, to thin for icing cakes
