WEMP-Free Buttercream Icing
This is the only Buttercream Icing you'll ever need! It's the ONLY one I use...although sometimes I make the WEMP-Free Chocolate Buttercream version. They are both delicious! And EASY!
3/4 cup Crisco
1/4 cup water
1 pound powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon egg- and dairy-free marshmallow cream
1/2 teaspoon powdered vanilla
1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon clear vanilla (to keep icing white!)
few drops of gel icing color for color, if desired
1. Blend all ingredients in mixer until smooth and creamy. (start SLOW then speed up as it comes together).
2. To reach desired consistency, add LITTLE bit of water at a time, or LITTLE bit of powdered sugar.
3. Stir in color gel if desired.
