Hi I'm Karen for Expert Village, while our cake is baking we are going to wipe up some
frosting. We are going to use a basic butter cream frosting and we would be using 4 cups
of confectioner sugar, 1/2 cup of shorten, a 1/2 cup of margarine, a teaspoon of vanilla
and about 2 tablespoons of milk and a little extra milk just encase the frosting is to
thick. Again I would be substituting soy milk for the milk. Okay we would start by putting
in the shorten and the margarine and we would beat that up until it is smooth. Now if you
don't want to use shorten you can use all margarine but shorten is really the best ingredient
to use for the butter cream frosting it gives a nice and smooth spreadable frosting.
