Imitation Clear Vanilla Extract
solid vegetable shortening
sticks unsalted butter
softened – not melted
sifted confectioners' sugar
(approximately 4 - 2 lb bags)
In a large bowl, beat shortening and butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in 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.
Gradually add milk; beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
This is enough frosting to ice a 3-layer, 8-inch cake, plus 12 cupcakes.
