Bride's Wedding Cake Frosting

This is a great tasting frosting/icing. It makes enough for three layer cakes. Works great on any cake you want to put it on. My friend and I made a batch for each of us a few weeks ago. We found that when we put together the powdered sugar and Crisco, it worked better to use two knives and crisscross through the ingredients until the sugar and Crisco mix pretty well. If you don’t do this, the powdered sugar will come flying up out of the bowl when you try to mix it.

This is a two part recipe. One part is my snowy white frosting. The other part is confectioner sugar frosting. You'll find my snowy white frosting on one of my articles. It's good all by itself. This recipe will show you in detail how to cook the second part of this recipe.

Items You Will Need:

  • Mixer
  • Two Large Mixer Bowls
  • One Saucepan
  • Candy thermometer

Ingredients for frosting

  • 2 lbs. confectioner sugar
  • 1 ½ lb. Crisco
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Mix sugar in Crisco by using to 2 knives after mixing with knives mix with the mixer until fluffy.

Second Part of the Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • ¼ tsp of cream of tartar
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¾ cups water
  • 1 tbsp. vinegar

Instructions

  1. Mix 4 egg whites and ¼ tsp of cream of tartar in mixer bowl until stiff.
  2. In a sauce pan, mix 2 cups sugar, ¾ cups water, and 1 tbsp. vinegar.
  3. Cook until it forms a thread about 230°F-235° F on candy thermometer.
  4. Pour hot mixture over egg white in the mixer and beat until stiff peaks form. Let cool for a short time then add Crisco mixture and beat until fluffy.

Makes enough for 3 cakes. Can be frozen in 3 separate containers. The frosting is a white frosting, very pretty.

        Catharvey, No I don’t think it would be it a pretty soft frosting.

        Would this frosting be good for decorating? I am trying to find a frosting that taste good and is also a good decorative frosting. I don't want to use the traditional crisco,butter and powder sugar.

        I'll keep this in mind for next June. I have always preferred fondant for wedding cake since Jamaica's traditional wedding cakes are usually fruit cakes, a bit heavy but not sure if I.m going traditional or contemporary.

        mary615,

        I'm from Arkansas and the profile picture is of a cotton field reminds me of home.

        This is a very good frosting it makes so much it's a little harder to work with but in the end you have extra for later.

        Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the vote.

        Hi, moonlake, I went back to your profile page to take a better look at the barn, etc. That looks like my kind of place!

        Love this recipe. I'm always looking for better ways to make frosting! I was in the kitchen till 2AM making a cookie house. I use Merangue powder for the frosing cause it serves as glue: gets really hard. If I ever finish it, I'll write a Hub.

        Regards, Mary BTW: I voted this Hub UP, etc.
