    Yes the butter and shortening cream together or you can use all butter if you like.....sorry I normally use all butter hence my error in leaving out the shortening...
    It is the only frosting I make...I don't like those sugary, powdery sweet ones made with powdered sugar at all!!

    Is the shortening creamed together with the butter and sugar for the frosting? This is a very interesting frosting recipe, and I'll definitely try it. And the cake sounds awesome too, thanks to you, and to Candice!
