A wonderful decorator frosting that tastes wonderful! I get rave reviews using this frosting. I have a friend who uses this to make wedding cakes. YUMMY, definitely better than bakery frostings.
Favorite Decorator Frosting
1 cup crisco
2 sticks butter (can also use a good margarine, but I prefer butter)
1 1/2 tsp clear vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. coconut extract
1 2 pound bag of powdered sugar
6 T. Milk (might need a little more than this), enough to make it smoothe to spread.
cream crisco, butter and extracts, slowly add powdered sugar and add a tiny amount of milk at a time. Once all the powdered sugar is added, if it’s still too stiff you can add a little milk at a time and continue whipping.
