1/2 cup regular (not the butter kind) shortening
1 stick butter (room temp)
1 tsp. vanilla (or whatever flavor extract you like - we do peppermint a lot)
5-6 tablespoons of milk (add more or less depending on how thick/stiff you want your frosting)
1 bag of confectionary sugar
Mix all ingredients together - add colors - and decorate! Yum, yum yummy!!
And here it is modeled on the three cakes this week. First, the ISpy kid party cake:
The actual birthday day cake:
(this one is a little lame - but I was running out of ideas and he handed me that lego guy - in the upper corner and asked me to make him) The grandparents are coming cake:
and here is the birthday boy!!!
Let me know if you try this frosting, and send me a photo of the cake you made!!
As always, feel free to copy!
