Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting
October 14, 2006

Excellent. I made it for a train cake for my son's birthday, it frosted and decorated 2 cake mixes with a little left over. Will definitely make again. I did use half butter, half shortening. I loved another reviewer's tip to beat the shortening/butter on high for 10 minutes before adding sugar. It makes the frosting so light and not greasy. Also, I have used 2% milk instead of the cream with equally delicious results. 3/2/08 Update: This is the standard birthday cake frosting for our family. Everyone who has tried it says it's the best frosting!
