Decorator Frosting

Decorator Frosting

1 1/2 cups Crisco shortening

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon butter (or almond) flavoring

2 pounds powdered sugar, sifted

1/2 cup water

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine shortening, salt, vanilla extract, and butter flavoring. Mix at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing at low - medium speed until sugar is incorporated. When the frosting starts to become thick, begin to add the water a small amount at a time, alternating with the remainder of the powdered sugar. After all ingredients have been blended smoothly, beat the frosting for 5 additional minutes at medium - high speed. Frosts and decorates two 9-inch layers or one 9 x 13-inch cake. Keep frosted cake refrigerated.
