In this video, Betty makes Snowy White Buttercream Frosting. This is made with confectioner's sugar, a white shortening, and no colored flavorings, in order to maintain its dramatic, white look. My grandson, Carter, helped use this frosting, colored green, to frost cookies for Saint Patrick's Day.
1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (white Crisco shortening)
2 Tablespoon (or more if needed)
3 Cup (48 tbs)
1. In a large bowl, combine shortening, salt, water, and almond extract. Using an electric mixer beat to combine.
2. Gradually add sugar and beat after each addition.
3. Add more water, if needed and beat until icing is of spreading consistency. Add more sugar to thicken, more water to thin, until smooth and creamy.
4. Use the icing to frost cakes or cupcakes as desired.
You can use the icing for cookies, cakes, and doughnuts.
