Wilton Buttercream Icing
This creamy, flavorful icing is ideal for decorating.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/2cupsolid vegetable shortening
1/2cupbutter or margarine
4cup(approx. 1 lb) sifted confectioners sugar

Recipe Instructions:

1.   Cream butter and shortening with electric mixer. Add vanilla.
2.   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 high speed until light and fluffy.
3.   Keep covered with a damp cloth until ready to use. Refrigerate when not in use. Keeps for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container. Rewhip before using.

Yield: 3 cups.

(Variations: For pure white icing and stiffer consistency, omit butter and add 1/2 cup all-vegetable shortening and 1/2 tsp Wilton Butter Extract. Use Wilton Clear Vanilla Extract. To thin icing, add 2 Tbsp more milk or corn syrup per recipe. To stiffen, chill icing or add more confectioners sugar. For chocolate icing, add 3/4 cup unsweetened chocolate or three 1 oz. melted unsweetened chocolate squares plus 2 Tbsp milk per recipe. Mix well.)
