This is a decent frosting recipe, but be aware you can taste the shortening, so if you aren't a fan, you probably should steer clear. Additionally, I wasn't about to dump a pound of confectioner's sugar in this thing without trying it first. I didn't really measure, but since a pound of sugar would've been about 3 2/3 cups (per a google search, anyway), I used nowhere near that amount. I would say I used at most 2 cups but think it was closer to 1 1/2. I'm not a fan of really sweet anything, so I had hubs test it for me and he approved at about the 1 1/2 cup mark. If you love sweet frosting, go right ahead and put it all in, but that would not work for me. I used this to frost the Best Moist Chocolate Cake from here and it worked beautifully. Thanks for the recipe!
