White Cake Icing

The key to a white cake icing is using shortening and powdered sugar.  The shortening gives it a white color.  Using butter or butter-flavored shortening will dull the color of the icing and make it appear yellow next to a white cake. This icing goes well with a pretty white cake!


1 1/8 cup shortening
3 1/2 - 4 cups powdered sugar
1 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract, clear
1/4 tsp. almond extract
3/4 tsp. butter flavoring
2 1/2 T. water


Place shortening in mixer bowl.  Add about half of the powdered sugar.  Add flavorings and beat until creamy.
Gradually add remaining powdered sugar, alternating with water.
Add water until desired consistency is reached.  Makes 2 1/2 cups

Happy munching!
