Success! After several failed attempts, this recipe yielded a nice light, fluffy frosting that spread easily... and didn't taste "crunchy" from the powdered sugar. I used my Kitchenaid for the heavy work in this recipe. I let the margarine and shortening cream for a few minutes, then added part of the sugar. When that was mixed, I added the vanilla, salt, and milk, then the rest of the sugar. I added in a few drops of food coloring (which distributed well- not streaky or grainy). I let the whole thing mix on a medium speed until it was nice and smooth. It doesn't taste *exactlly* like bakery frosting, but it's the best I've ever made! It made enough to generously frost a 9x13 cake.. with plenty left for bowl-licking!
