This was my Nana's homemade white frosting and everyone loves it! So I'm now sharing it with all of you so you can enjoy it also. It can easily be flavored and colored with extracts or food coloring.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup margarine, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
Pour milk into a saucepan, and bring to just a simmer. Be careful, if it starts to boil, it will quickly boil over.
Meanwhile, combine the shortening, margarine and sugar in a large bowl, and beat with an electric mixer until light. When the milk is heated, gradually drizzle in the hot milk, while continuing to whip until light and fluffy.
