Classic Buttercream Icing

1.) Using a mixer, Cream shortening, vanilla and water until smooth.

2.) On low speed add in confectioners’ sugar a little at a time until fluffy. Then turn up to medium speed for about 2 minutes. Add water (1 teaspoon at a time if icing is too stiff, needs to be spreadable)

3.) Using a spatula scrape down the sides to make sure it all gets mixed together.
