Would not make this again.
I made this with half shortening and half butter has someone suggested and it doesn't spread well at all :( 3 stars

I love this recipe for flooding the whole batch of sugar cookies in color then after that making the royal icing in white and drizzling it over the top of each one...a bit of extra work but they look great and that extra crunchy texture of the icing is fun too. 5 stars

I made this recipe today to frost sugar cookies. I used half butter and half shortening - it's really delicious! I added a little more cream (a total of 4 ounces, instead of 3). This made the frosting easier for the kids to spread without breaking the cookies. 5 stars

This recipe is the traditional cake decorators icing from years ago. Unfortunately, those who prefer butter and natural flavors will NOT find this recipe appealing.

If you need a very stable frosting and will not have access to a refridgerator, use this recipe as is. If you need stability but prefer a more natural flavor, use 1/2 crisco and 1/2 real butter.

If you detest the taste of solid vegetable shortening and hydrogenated oil, skip it and use real butter exclusively. If you do, be sure to keep the cookies refridgerated, as their shelf life will be much shorter than had you used all solid veg. shortening.

I made this for frosting sugar cookies and it's a very tasty recipe. The only thing I change a little was to use the half butter shortening and half real butter version. 5 stars

This frosting was wonderful! I loved everything about it, perfectly creamy and sweet! I put these on the ultimate sugar cookies also from this site. I also used this frosting to make a little dog out of red velvet cupcakes on the same occasion. My husband and I placed second in the company baked off. I will be using this frosting again. 5 stars

This a great recipe for icing that will set-up well. I just used it to make bowling ball cookies for my son's birthday. It was perfect. I can see where it might not be good for a whole cake, but it is very good for piping details. 5 stars
