Soft Wedding Cake White Icing
|Soft vegetable shortening||1⁄2 Pound|
|Sifted icing sugar||5 Cup (80 tbs)|
|Milk||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Almond extract||2 Teaspoon|
Beat the shortening on medium speed until creamy, then add the icing sugar and milk alternately, beating after each addition.
Add salt and extract.
Test the consistency.
The icing is a good thickness when it is smooth and does not run when a dab is spread on the side of the cake.
Add more sifted icing sugar, or thin with milk if necessary.
We like icing to be slightly stiffer for a decorating tube than for spreading.
Beat this icing occasionally when frosting the cake or decorating, and keep covered with a damp cloth.
