This makes a great icing! I didn't have any shortening, so I used 1 3/4 sticks of butter. I did find it a bit too sweet, but after I added a few dashes of salt it was perfect. The texture was perfect. I didn't have any food coloring, so I added a few teaspoons of the red velvet cake batter to it to give it color. It worked perfectly! I will definitely be making this one again!

I didn't have any powdered sugar or parchment paper. I just sprayed the pan a lot more than I normally would and left the sugar off. Still turned out amazing.
