Simple vanilla frosting is a great topper for any cupcake. Annie frosted 300 cupcakes with this recipe for her wedding in lieu of a traditional cake. It made for a delicious bridal twist. —Annie Rundle, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"Best frosting recipe, hands down! This was perfect! I made it with my paddle and it whipped it very nicely. So many compliments."

"I honestly joined so that I could rate this recipe. I halved it and forgot to add the last cup of powder sugar but wow was this good! I have never made a frosting with shortening and though I worried about it for a second, i didn't seem to have a problem while licking the beaters clean. This was really good, light and fluffy. Perfect for cupcakes. Enjoy!"

"I really like the consistency of this frosting! Very light! I halved it as I only needed it for one batch of cupcakes. Will freeze some of it to see how well it holds up!"
