Buttercream Frosting

For those who would prefer to make their own icing instead of using store bought!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups shortening
1/2 cup butter
8 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons clear imitation vanilla extract (must be clear or else the icing will be tinted brown)
3/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions:

Using an electric mixer, cream shortening and butter together until light and very, very fluffy (about 8 minutes).  Add confectioners' sugar and continue creaming until extremely well blended.
Slowly add salt, vanilla, and heavy cream on a low speed until moistened.  Then beat at high speed until the frosting is once again fluffy.
Use on any baked good of choice! :)
