 Recipe Information  
Category: Frostings
Recipe Created By: Laurie Carson



 

 Ingredients  
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp water or milk


 Directions  
Beat all ingredients together thoroughly.


 Notes  
To make it thinner, add a little light corn syrup.

You could add cocoa to it to make it chocolate, if desired. I also added a drop or two of almond extract to take away some of the sweetness, but it's fine without it, too.


 Substitutions  
Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.

Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
