Recipe Information
White & fluffy. Traditional wedding cake frosting.

B Flathau

Serves/Makes:enough for 1 cake

  • 1 cup (225 ml) shortening (crisco)
  • 1-1/2 tsp (7 ml) vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) lemon juice or 1/4 tsp (1 ml) lemon extract
  • 4-1/2 cups (1050 ml) to 5 cups (1175 ml) powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) to 4 tbsp (60 ml) milk (maybe a little more)
  • Beat shortening, vanilla and lemon on high until smooth.
  • Add half of the sugar & all the milk; beat.
  • Slowly add in the additional sugar.
  • Taste test--be sure it's creamy but not too soft or it will not set up.
I use a basic sugar cookie recipe and frost them with this. It does taste just like the traditional wedding cake frosting. Everyone that has tried it always comments on the yummy frosting.
