Very White Decorator Frosting

whiteFor use in fancy decorating… or when you need a WHITE Frosting

This frosting is made with a butter and shortening combination. I got the recipe from the guy in the bakery department at the grocery store, who says they use it because it is easy to make decorations, and it holds up well.

So… use this frosting if –
-you are making complicated decorations
-you are traveling, and know that the cupcakes will get a few jolts
-you love the inside of Oreos (that’s what’s there)
