RECIPE: Buttercream Frosting
Has anyone made this recipe before? We have a bakery here in Pgh that is famous for its frosting and the recipe is a secret. I found this by doing a Google search of the bakery name but I have not made it yet so I don't know if it is good or not. I will post after I make it this weekend but was hoping someone here had made it and can say if its good or not.

1 cup milk
Â½ cup solid vegetable shorting

Gradually add the sauce and beat 2 minutes more or until light and creamy and sugar is dissolved.
