Wilton Buttercream

1/2 cup solid white vegetable shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. flavoring (clear vanilla abstract, or almond or butter abstract will work too)
2 tbsp milk or water
1 lb. confectioners’ sugar (approx 4 cups)
1 tbsp. meringue powder
a pinch of salt

Cream shortening, butter, flavor, and water. Add dry ingredients and mix on medium speed until all incorporated. Blend an additional minute or so, until creamy. Add water as necessary until frosting reaches desired consistency.

** Chocolate variation: Add 3/4 c. cocoa or three 1 oz. unsweetened choc squares (melted), and an additional 1 to 2 Tbsp. water to recipe. Mix until well blended.
