This recipe can be found on the Wilton website, or on most Wilton cake pans. When making this recipe to frost a cake I double it. I use a whole bag of conf. sugar. 32 oz. The recipe is not currently doubled as listed.


  • 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine softened
  • 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
  • 4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (approximately 1 lb.)
  • 2 tablespoons milk

  1. In a large bowl, cream the shortening and butter with an electric mixer.
  2. Add the vanilla.
  3. Gradually add the sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed.
  4. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl often.
  5. Next add the milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.

You can keep your frosting from getting stiff by placing a damp cloth on top of the bowl.

For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Mix again before using.
