Buttercream Icing

Buttercream Icing


  • 2lb powdered sugar (1 bag)
  • 11 tablespoons milk (of your choice)
  • 1 cup organic shortening (look for Spectrum brand)
  • 2 teaspoons extract (of your choice)


Mix together ingredients by hand, then whip at high speed until light and fluffy. This crusts quickly, so cover the bowl with a damp towel while you work with it.

Makes enough icing for 1/4 sheet or 24 cupcakes.
