I tried this recipe because it has no dairy. It's easy to make and works well to ice a cake, but I do agree with a lot of reviewers that it is overly sweet and lacking in flavor, so I could taste the shortening. I used Spectrum vegetable shortening (palm shortening) so perhaps it tastes better when using Crisco. I used the white to frost the cake, and then added come cocoa powder to what was left, and piped brown writing onto the cake. I definitely prefer the chocolate version, as the cocoa masks the shortening flavor.
