EXCELLENT RECIPE! I cut this in 1/2 all the time to ice a sheet cake (at home). Anyone that thinks it's greasy-you did not follow instructions. By beating the shortening, water, flavoring and 1/2 sugar, u are incorporating the water/moisture into the shortening, which lightens it. If you don't follow that step (yes, mixing about 10 min prior to adding the rest of the sugar) it will leave a film/be heavy tasting. I did substitute the following: 1/2 C shortening, 1/2 C unsalted butter to my version. FANTASTIC flavor! Have a cake baking right now my daughter made just to have the frosting again!
