Yummy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

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.

You'll never grab a can of icing again once you try this creamy, smooth recipe! We loved the flavor of this icing and it will perfectly top of any cake. The Test Kitchen
