      I used this recipe to ice my daughter's birthday cake. Turned out perfect, just had to wait for butter to be at room temp. I will be using this recipe again & AGAIN. Thanks for sharing!

      Tasty!! I kept finding ones with "vegetable shortening" in them, and I had no idea what it was! So this one was good
