I made this to practice with piping. I probably would have done half butter, but because it was for practice only I followed the recipe and used all shortening. I scaled the recipe down to (3) servings with the calculate button, and still got a full 1 1/2 cups to work with! I thought it tasted exactly like what one would think the frosting would taste like on a traditional basic wedding cake. I used to have another similar recipe and lost it, so I will save this one instead. I wouldn't use it for anything other than cupcakes or if someone wanted a basic style wedding cake as it isn't loaded with flavor. However, I don't care for shortening in icing, so it might just be me. I'll be practicing some with it this week, it looks like it will hold up shape well to test designs. Thanks.
