Why I Love This Recipe

If you like the frostings from supermarket cakes and cupcakes, you might want to try this one I found while exploring the internet.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups shortening
1/2 cup non-dairy coffee creamer (such as Coffee Mate)
1 tsp. almond extract
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 (32 oz.) pkg. confectioners’ sugar (4 cups)
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
Food coloring of your choice


In a large mixing bowl, beat the shortening, creamer and extracts until creamy and light. Gradually beat in the confectioners’ sugar.

Add in enough water until the frosting reaches desired consistency.

Add in food coloring until the desired shade is achieved.

Generously frosts about 48 cupcakes.
