Not sure where my family got this, but it was a very popular cake for our families weddings (not mine but still) I used to ask my mother to make this for me every year for my birthday. It is great. I have had people ask me to make their birthday cake out of this, they absolutely love the frosting.
1/2 Cup solid Crisco
I made the frosting for cupcakes for my 7 year old Christmas party. They loved it, but the parents raved about the taste and texture.
