Does anyone have a good frosting recipe?

Beyondapeanut-I agree-crisco frosting can be a bit icky. Unfortunately to get that decorator stiffness you need something like crisco to keep it stiff.

Have you tried buttercream icing or fondant? Buttercream also uses crisco-but the butter and sugar usually take over in flavor.

Heres a website that Ive used.

There are also dry packages you can buy in the cake aisle of party and craft stores for buttercream frosting..and I think they sell tubs too..but I dont know about their manufacturing practices.

My dd is allergic to cottonseed oil and it is in ALL the processed icings because it helps it stand up so well, hth

I have one for you to try. It is very yummy, we used it when we decorated Christmas cookies with our PA son.

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine
6 cups Powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream shortening and margarine. Add sugar, milk and vanilla. Blend until well mixed. Blend addition minute or so until creamy.

Yields enough frosting for a 9x13 cake
