Start with a can of store bought icing and “extend” it for a yummy homemade version of buttercream.

Store Bought Buttercream Extender


  • 3-4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 c. crisco
  • 1-2 tsp. vanilla or orther flavoring
  • 1 can ready made frosting


  1. Mix the butter and crisco first in a mixer and then add other ingredients. Mix on low until completely blended. Takes color well. Makes a medium consistency icing good for piping stars.
