Delectable Tuesday Blog Hop 5/24 - Basic White Frosting

It's Tuesday! I can't wait to see what recipes you share today. I think we had a record number last week. It was so exciting!!

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
Dash salt
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.
