Grandma Allred's Frosting

When we were little we lived with Grandma and Grandpa Allred for about a year.  Grandma made wedding cakes on the side and our favorite days were when we came home from school and Grandma was in the middle of making one of these delicious cakes.  Although it meant we had to stay away from the dinning room, it also meant that we got to eat the cake scraps along with her delicious frosting.  I'm not a big fan of frosting, but to this day I LOVE Grandma Allred's wedding cake frosting.

Wedding Cake Frosting:
1/4 c. meringue powder
1/4 c. warm water
2 tsp. salt
1 TB flavoring
Beat until meringue powder is dissolved.

Add in 2 c. Crisco and mix well.
Add in 2 1/2 lb. powdered sugar and 1/2 c. water.  Mix well.

Buttercream Frosting:
1/3 cup half and half (or 1/4 c. milk)
1/3 c. Crisco
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. flavoring
1 pound powdered sugar

Mix together and frost cake.
