Edible Buttercream Frosting Recipe for Making Gingerbread Houses

Almost Buttercream Frosting
(Edible for Gingerbread Houses)


1/2 cup white shortening
3-1/2 cups powered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (use clear vanilla to avoid discoloring frosting)
1/4 teaspoon almond or coconut extract
3-4 tablespoons milk or hot water
Food color (optional)


Beat shortening and flavoring for about one minute, then slowly add half of the sugar, mixing in well. Add half of the milk or water and mix well. Gradually beat in the rest of the sugar and just enough milk or water to reach the desired consistency, whether for piping or spreading. Stir in food coloring.
