Creamy Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I have been making this recipe for years. I have found the longer you let it mix the easier the sugar blends into the icing. I mix it for 10-minutes and I have found that the sugar almost melts into the mixture. If it is gritty at all by the time I serve the cake it is fine. This icing is requested by friends and family ALL the time. It is exceptional on a dark chocolate cake. I have also added cocoa powder to the sugar/shortening mix and it makes an excellant chocolate icing.
