I love buttercream icings, so I wanted to have some butter flavor in this, but keep it a nice white icing. Subbed in 1/4 c salted butter, 1 tbsp milk, and 1/2 vanilla, 1/2 almond extract. Reduced shortening to 1/2 c and sugar to 3 1/2. Definitely needed to add water for texture, but milk gave it a creamier flavor. Would definitely make this again, probably play with different clear extracts/flavorings. If you're looking to decorate a 2 8" rounds, you'll need to 1.5 or 2x this recipe. With my slight reductions, it was barely enough to fill and frost.
