For roses, I've found the all shortening one to be the one to get stiff enough to stand up and hold it's own.

Ok now when you say the all shortening...where can I find that recipe? Or is it the one with the 1/2C of shortening and 1 stick of butter?

TIA

The all shortening recipe is the one where if it calls for 1/2 butter and 1/2 shorterning you use 100% shortening:

1 cup of shortening
1 lb of powdered sugar
1 tablespoon of meringue powder
2 tablespoon or water or milk (for thick consistency)
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of clear vanilla
1 teaspoon of butter extract or any other flavor you like

This will give you the perfect consistency for roses.
