Cream butter and shortening with electric mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating wel on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, the icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at high speed until light and fluffy. Keep icing covered with a damp cloth until ready to use. For best results, keep in refrigerator when not in use. Yield: 3 cups
More confectioner's sugar can be added for a stiffer consistency.
For a smoother texture, you can a 1 Tablespoon Light Corn Syrup with you add the Vanilla.

Loshebo 1 year agoIn resonse to the last comment, yes this icing is sweeter than cream cheese frosting. But you have to remember that it is intended for cake decorating therefore its consistency has to be pliable and yet stiff. Sorry you didn't find something you liked.
