Hester's Red Velvet Cake Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
I've never written a review here before, but this recipe stunned me into amazement so I had to share. I ran out of icing sugar and needed a last minute recipe to make some cupcake frosting before running off to a pot-luck. Looking at this recipe I was skeptical that it would work, but had little other choice. Even as I was mixing it together, I envisioned a granular crunchy icing. I couldn't have been more wrong. This was so silky, smooth and delicious! It's better than my go-to icing recipe even. I may never buy icing sugar again. I did make a couple modifications: I used half a cup of butter and half a cup of vegetable shortening, and I didn't have any milk so I used half a cup of whipping cream and half a cup of water. Sooooo delicious!!!!
