  • Step One
  • Beating Ingredients: In a large bowl, beat together the shortening, vanilla and salt on high speed until they become fluffy.
  • Step Two
  • Adding the Powdered Sugar and Milk: Add the powdered sugar to the mix. Beat the mix on low speed and gradually add the milk until the mix is smoothly blended.
  • Step Three
  • Beat the Mixture: On high speed, beat the mixture for approximately two minutes, until the frosting is smooth and creamy. It is important to make sure you beat the frosting for long enough, in order to make sure it was reached a smooth and creamy consistency.


  • Using Crisco instead of butter in a recipe allows the frosting to become more stable, have a longer shelf life and withstand heat better. Crisco is also cheaper than butter. This is why many grocery bakeries use Crisco instead of butter for their frostings.
  • If you are needing to make a lot of frosting, Crisco frosting is a great choice to make as it easy and will last. Crisco frosting is also great to make if you are in a hurry because you don’t have to worry about waiting for butter to thaw.
  • If you have leftover frosting you have been storing in the fridge, it is best to let it thaw out till it reaches room temperature. This will make the frosting easier to use when you are decorating your baked goods. Frosting made with Crisco tends to be easier to pipe than butter-based frostings.
