Additional Information

Step 1

Cream shortening and butter with electric mixer. Add ice cream topping and vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.

Step 2

Keep icing covered with a damp cloth until ready to use. For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Re-whip before using.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great taste This is a great tasting icing, but it did not say how much milk to add. I added about 2tbsp, but the icing was extremely thick and tore the cake apart while I tried to decorate it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tasty but did not hold shape I made this recipe without the milk because it doesn't say how much and the frosting was way too soft. No stiff peaks and did not hold its shape . I don't know if the type of ice creaming topping needs to be different but I'm not happy with look. My friends love it but I'm a looks person and the frosting should not be melting down the sides.
