This is a pure white wedding cake frosting. You can double the recipe if you have a sturdy mixer. Add milk according to purpose; you need less if you are making flowers or borders than if you are just covering a cake. Remove what you need for decorating before you thin the rest down for frosting.
- 1 cup shortening
- 4 cups confectioners' sugar
- 4 tablespoons milk
- 1 ½ teaspoons almond extract
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat on low speed of electric mixer until well blended and very smooth.
