This recipe is the basic "Wilton" decorator's recipe. The small amount of milk does not require refrigeration, but any left over icing needs to be refrigerated and used with a few days. Your iced cake will be fine for a couple of day.

I have always heard that crisco based icings is best to use if your cake will be in the heat so I think this one would be great!

Does this make a smooth icing? Very similar to Wilton, with out the powdered egg whites...is the consistency stiff?
