Directions:
Cream butter and shortening with electric mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at high speed until light and fluffy. Keep covered with a damp cloth until ready for use. Refrigerate when not in use. Keeps up for 2 weeks in airtight container. Rewhip before using. Makes 3 cups. For purer white icing and stiffer consistency, omit butter and add cup all vegetable shortening and tbsp. Wilton butter extract. Use Wilton clear vanilla extract. To thin icing, add 2 tbsps. more milk or light corn syrup per recipe. To stiffen, chill icing or add more icing sugar. For chocolate icing, add cup unsweetened chocolate or 3 - 1oz. melted unsweetened chocolate squares plus 2 tbsps. milk per recipe. Mix well.
