Total Time: 15 Minutes, Servings: 12 Servings

Ingredients :
  • 1 Cup shortening, such as Crisco (*see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (*nut allergies see notes)
  • 1 large bag powdered sugar (2 lbs, about 8 cups)
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream or whole milk (more if needed to reach desired consistency)
  • Food coloring, if desired



Instructions :
  • In the bowl of your mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl for use with your handheld electric mixer, place shortening and extracts. Beat until creamy (at least 1 minute).
  • Begin adding powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.
  • When the mixture starts to become dry start adding cream a little bit at a time alternating with the powdered sugar.
  • Beat until creamy. Use more or less cream to reach desired consistency. (I like for it to be smooth enough to pipe through a piping bag, but still a bit more firm than typical store-bought frosting.)
  • Add food coloring if desired.
