The icing on the cup...CAKE

I was inspired in NYC by this cupcake place and this cupcake place. So yesterday me and my three girls hit up the cake shop to buy all the necessary things to make "fancy cupcakes". I decided to dig up this old recipe for the best frosting EVER.

I took a cake decorating class about 10 years ago ~ the best thing about this class was getting this recipe. I haven't made it in years, but I decided to make it last night and let me tell you - it is incredible. You must try!!! A few of the ingredients may be hard to find, but if you have a cake supply store nearby, they should carry the white margarine and the almond emulsion....

Donna's Favorite Frosting Recipe

3/4 cup Powdered Coffee Mate

1/2 cup boiling water

*mix together and chill for at least 4 hours.

1 lb. White (uncolored) margarine (cold)

2 cups of Crisco solid shortening

*cream together at low speed until well blended

ADD: 1/2 tsp. Clear vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. Almond Emulsion

ADD: Chilled coffee mate mixture

ADD: 2 lbs. Confectioners Sugar - slowly until well blended

Cream together and let blend at medium speed for 15 minutes (very important).
