Ingredients needed to make this recipe include: 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of butter-flavored Crisco, 2 eggs and 5 cups of flour, divided out. In addition, measure out 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 3 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 cup of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Combine the corn syrup and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla until the consistency of the icing is smooth and glossy. For color variations, add food coloring to the mix. Pour the icing in a bag, and cut the corner for easy application.
