I followed the advice of other reviewers and used butter/crisco, 4.5 oz cream, 2 tsp vanilla, and 6 cups of powdered sugar. I beat the butter/crisco for ~10 mins, and the sugar mixture another 10 mins. It came out beautifully-- so fluffy and light and pretty! The only thing is, for some reason it was kind of flimsy (even after cooling in the fridge for a while), so when I tried piping roses, they kept falling over. I eventually got them to work, but it was a bit frustrating. Not sure if I added too much cream or if it was too warm in my kitchen. However, for the rest of the cake, the frosting was great and easy to work with. A *little* too sweet for my own taste, but my company liked it. Thanks!
