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!
