cold evaporated milk
The only thing I did different was use Powdered Sugar instead of white sugar. It came out just like the whipped cream frosting I've had from bakeries. I WILL suggest the following: make sure you use butter and not margarine or spread. Also, really beat it well. It takes awhile for the evap milk to start setting.
This recipe was one that I decided to try because it seemed easy and I had all the ingredients in the house.
Along with what other raters have to say, I found it quite waxy tasting when in the bowl, but when I tried it spread thinly on a cupcake, it tasted fine. I probably wouldn't be making it again, as there's nothing extraordinary about it and it just wasn't what I was looking for.
I tried this because I had limited ingredients in the house. It turned out very waxy tasting and I didn't even use it on my cake.
I had a similar recipe but had lost it.
This was pretty good. I think mine used all butter. If I were to make this again, I would subsitute the shortening with butter, I didn't enjoy the flavor as much.
This frosting was to thin and did not have a great flavor. I had to keep putting the cake back in the refrigerator so the frosting would be managable.
The texture of this frosting was questionable. I didn't like the regular granulated sugar in it, because it made the frosting crunchy. I wish I'd tried powdered sugar. The frosting didn't really have much of a flavor, but it did have a waxy feel like one other comment stated. For flavor, I added a small box of orange jello mix and a couple extra tablespoons of evaporated milk. I did not understand why the butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla needed to be beaten/mixed for 8-10 minutes. This is excessive. It's not like I'm making a froth or whipping egg whites.
I needed a quick recipe to frost funfetti cupcakes and I didnt have 10x sugar, so I tried this...I used real butter, crisco, and imported vanilla and it tasted like eating lard...The only thing I could think of to make it have a taste was to pour near a whole package of jello raspberry jello in it...It did help, but I won't be making this again
Sorry to give a bad review, but no matter what I tried from other reviewers--powdered sugar, extra vanilla, butter instead of margarine--it still turned out tasting like straight shortening. Very pretty frosting, though.
