Today I'm going to share a recipe that has been in my family forever. I've heard rumors that it was originally a Wilton recipe, but I'm not sure.
This week's recipe is a basic white frosting. I use boxed cake mixes a lot, but I always make my own frosting. It's super easy and really good.
This frosting can be used on just about anything. I use it on sugar cookies and other cookies that call for frosting. I also use it on cakes and cupcakes. It colors really easily too.
Basic White Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp. vanilla extract
5 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
Using an electric mixer, mix all ingredients together except milk. On highest setting, gradually add in milk until creamy and smooth. Color as desired.
