  1. butter, softened 1 tsp. maple flavoring (like vanilla extract) 4 cups (1 lb.) powdered sugar 2 Tbsp. milk Cream butter and shortening. Add maple flavoring. Gradually add powdered sugar. Gradually add milk and continue beating until light and airy. Add more milk if needed. Color with paste colors. This icing is a light yellow and colors you add will be affected by this. For pure white icing, use 1 cup regular Crisco shortening and 1/2 tsp. Wilton butter flavoring. This icing is somewhat stiffer. For blazing white, add Wilton White White. Wilton White White will also make the first buttercream recipe whiter, but be careful with colors as they will still tend to be yellowish. Note: Excellent cake and frosting!
