I did a half-batch and it was pretty good. I used ½ cup shortening, 1/4 cup butter, about 1 tsp pure lemon extract, about 3 cups of confectioners' sugar (the two-pound bag I have says that two pounds equals approximately 7½ cups, but my frosting was plenty sweet even cutting out 3/4 cup!), a couple good shakes of salt, and I'd say about 3 or 4 TBS water. I kept having to add water because it was too thick! Be warned: Use a BIG bowl. I used the large bowl for my Sunbeam Mixmaster and I still had frosting bits flying all over the kitchen! Oh, well. I did use a little food coloring with no problems at all. I only beat it around 10 minutes, and I ended up with around 2 cups of frosting for the half-batch. My daughter loves it, but my husband will be the true tester! I'll add to my review after he's tried it...
