Bridal Cake Frosting Recipe

I've made wedding cakes for 15 years. I use box mixes but created my own frosting recipe. It has a nice flavor, plus it pipes and sets up well. I used this frosting on the cake when our daughter, Delores, married cowboy Les Jensen.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. YIELD:40 servings

Ingredients

  • 10 cups shortening, divided
  • 35 cups confectioners' sugar (about 10 pounds), divided
  • 2-1/2 cups milk, divided
  • 10 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 5 teaspoons almond extract, divided

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream 2 cups shortening. Gradually beat in 7 cups confectioners' sugar. Add 1/2 cup milk; beat until light and fluffy. Beat in 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 teaspoon almond extract. Repeat four times. Store in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before decorating cake. Yield: 40 cups.
