The frosting turned out perfect, and frosted a 2-layer cake perfectly. However, I don't think it tasted any better than the stuff you buy from the store. I used 2 sticks of butter rather than shortening, because butter is healthier. I thought it tasted like sugar, butter, and vanilla. It was very sweet. Next time I might omit a cup of sugar and add a cup of cocoa to make chocolate frosting and lessen the sweetness a little. Overall, it was a good frosting, considering I had a hankering to bake a cake from scratch and needed a frosting I could whip up with ingredients I had in the house.
