This has become my go to frosting recipe!! It's so easy to change the flavor by changing the flavor of the powdered coffee creamer, or sometimes I use malted milk powder which is especially good on a chocolate cake!! Be sure to beat this in a stand mixer for a full 5 minutes, though, otherwise it can be a little greasy tasting
Given the mixed reviews I cut the recipe in 1/2. I also substituted 1/2 of the shortening for softened butter. I used both vanilla and cherry extracts. Perfect! Would definitely make this again with out cutting in 1/2.
This was a nasty mistake. It was like eating shortening and the almond extract was gross. This was nothing like the frosting I get on a bakery cake.
This frosting tastes nothing like bakery frosting, and is not very tasty. I added vanilla extract to try and help the taste but it was still no good. I dumped out the whole batch and tried a different recipe. I definitely do not recommend this recipe.
i was looking for a frosting that was easy and needed no refrigeration. i thought i had found it...but this is so too sweet and nothing like the frosting from any bakery that i know. i did give it two stars though because it keeps in the fridge for months so i kept it... to practice my frosting techniques with. i practice frosting cupcakes with it by using the bottom of a glass that is the same size as a cupcake, when I'm done i just scrape it off and put it back in the fridge. the container i keep it in is marked "practice frosting"and that is the only thing that i use it for.
