1/2 c. vegetable shortening
1/2 tsp. to 1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. confectioner's sugar
enough milk to make smooth
Basic icing for cake, cupcakes, cookies. Just make sure the cake is cooled completely before frosting or you'll end up with a slidey mess, take it from me.
Combine. Stir well. Spread on a cake.
Chocolate frosting: Add 2 squares melted unsweetened baker's chocolate to shortening.
