Yep..I agree thumbs_up.gif I absolutely LOVE her recipe. It taste wonderful and it is so easy to work with and smooth. I've also made a cream cheese version and it smoothed beautifully as well.

I bet you'll love it. Here are a couple of tips that make it even better.
BEAT your crisco at least 15 minutes BEFORE adding any other ingredients. It will look like sour cream once it's been "pulverized" icon_lol.gif SIFT your powdered sugar and warm your milk (I use half & half) before adding.

Once you've added all of the ingredients...walk away from your mixer and let it rip.....I usually let mine go for at least 20 minutes. It will make the most creamy..delicious icing you can imagine. thumbs_up.gif I always make a double batch when I make it because it keeps for two to three weeks at room temperature.

ALSO...don't refrigerate unless you have a perishable filling. This icing will crust in under 5 minutes but if you ice a frozen cake or a cold cake you're going to have "crusting" problems. Your cake should be at room temperature BEFORE you ice it.

Just wanted to try and help you avoid some of the problems you could get into w/o being aware of them. Let us know whatcha think after you've tried it.

If you like the cream cheese in it, you should try this one: Add some drops of orange oil to the cream cheese version. It makes the best "dreamsicle" icing you'll ever taste!

Had one mother who came to my tasting and had the dreamsicle icing. She then went to another bakery and specifically requested "orange" icing to sample. Came back to me to book because of the dreamsicle taste.

Try it. I guarantee you'll swoon.

Mamawrobin, when you did your cream cheese icing did you do all butter, or half butter-half shorting. I did all butter this time, plan to try half an half next time.

What could I do to the icing to not make it grainy and crust fast?

Because of the humidity I used half and half...I am definitely going to add the orange extract like Indydebi suggested. I love the orange dreamsicle cake and that sounds just too good. thumbs_up.gif

kraziboutkakes..always love seeing your "location" because I actually DO live in "Small Town U.S.A." (Justin Moore's country video was shot here...he's my brother-in-laws nephew) If any of you have seen the video (the op knows this) the entire thing was filmed here in "Small Town U.S.A." where I live. thumbs_up.gif

Me too. He and his band spent the weekend here a couple of weeks ago we had a big crawfish boil and swimming party at my sister's and brother in law's house. It's cool to know someone "famous" icon_lol.gif but since I've known him his entire life it's really NOT like knowing someone famous icon_lol.gif

This may already be answered somewhere else, but do you use the paddle or the whisk attachment to mix?
