Love how smooth it is, no grit whatsoever. Easy to frost and pipe with. Not a great taste, very shortening taste and consistency. Next time I will try upping the butter and lessening the shortening.
I was wondering if your using a heavy duty mixer.. It is real good to work with and honestly I have had many people saying the icing was delicious.. how are you mixing it.. Try creaming the butter crisco superfine sugar and your extract all at once. mix it for some time.. I want you to like the taste.. :)
I was so excited to use this recipe. I made this 3 times and it was gritty, you could taste the flour, and it had the consistency and taste of shortening. It wouldn't crust so I couldn't smooth it and my cake was ruined. I don't have any idea how I could have messed up this bad, much less 3 times. :( I'm sad.
