Recipe: White Frosting by Aunt Muriel and Decorative Cakes

My Aunt Muriel used this frosting on many a birthday cake when I was young. It was always a treat! I have adopted it and used it on many cakes throughout the years as you can see in the photos. It can be thickened with a little extra confectioner's sugar to form decorative flowers on a cake using Wilton tips. And the frosting can be tinted any color to meet your decorative needs as in the basketball cake.
White Frosting
4 tablespoons spry or crisco
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
12 tablespoons milk
In an electric mixer, combine spray, butter, vanilla, salt, sugar and add milk as needed - you may not need all the milk. This recipe makes an excellent pure white frosting.
