I use white Crisco. I use it in my white butter cream frosting I frost all my cakes with. I use Wilton Meringue Mix that I get at Wal-mart. I've found that you can use this same recipe and add cocoa powder towards the end in place of powdered sugar to make chocolate frosting that won't melt off a cake in the heat of summer! The recipe for the white buttercream frosting is with the mix. I don't use quite as much powdered sugar as it calls for. Good luck all!
