BUTTER CREAM FROSTING
1 cup real butter (not margarine) *room temperature
1 cup vegetable shortening
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups powdered (confectioners) sugar
1/4 – 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
paste food coloring
Thoroughly cream butter and shortening . Beat in the vanilla. Add sugar, one cup at a time until blended. When the sugar is completely beaten in and the sides of the bowl are scraped down, add the whipping cream, beating at the highest speed until super fluffy, about one minute.
If you wish to add color to your frosting, use the gel paste food coloring. It’s stronger and more vibrant. Add frosting to a pastry bag with your favorite tip and frost!
