A previous reviewer said this frosting tastes like the frosting on a Costco cake, and that's exactly right. I personally do not typically like shortening-based frosting, but was looking for a frosting that would be a little smoother and more decorator-friendly than pure butter cream frosting usually is. In an effort to minimize the shortening taste, I used 1 1/2 cups butter and only 1/2 a cup shortening, but it still tasted like and had the greasy texture of shortening. It was very nice for decorating/piping, however. So if you don't mind a grocery-store-bakery frosting flavor, this is a good recipe. I won't be using it again, though.
