Classic White Icing
This is a creamy sweet icing that is pure white - a delicious background for any cake you're decorating!
- 1 cup Shortening
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons Almond Extract or Vanilla Extract I like to use whichever one I used in my cake.
- 6 cups powdered sugar
- 8-10 Tablespoons milk
With an electric mixer, whip the shortening, salt and flavoring of your choice on high until fluffy
On low speed slowly add one cup of powdered sugar at a time until all 6 cups have been added
Add milk one Tablespoon at a time until icing is desired consistency - don't panic if it gets a little runny just add more powdered sugar a little at a time to thicken!
