Made this to go with my Mtn Dew Cake recipe. This yields enough to cover and fill a 9″ cake. Will crust and is perfect for using under fondant.
|1 cup||butter, unsalted and room temperature|
|1/2 cup||crisco (shortening)|
|1 teaspoon||lime zest|
|1 teaspoon||lime juice|
|1/2 teaspoon||lemon zest|
|1/2 teaspoon||orange zest|
|3/4 teaspoon||real orange extract|
|1 teaspoon||real lemon extract|
|2 teaspoons||Mountain Dew soda pop|
|2 Tablespoons||sweetened condensed milk|
|1 1/2 – 2 lbs||powdered sugar (3/4 bag)|
In stand mixer, cream butter with crisco till smooth. Next add in extracts, zests, Mountain Dew, and condensed milk. Beat till creamy on med/high speed. Reduce speed to lowest setting (place clean dish towel over mixer – keeps sugar dust from getting all over everything). Slowly add in powered sugar, approx 1c at a time, beating till mixed. Use approx. 3/4 full of the 2lb bag. Can add more powered sugar if desired. This makes a nice spreadable frosting, perfect for filling and piping. Store any left over frosting in refrigerator. Bring to room temperature and stir to re-fluff.
