This recipe came out great but be prepared to make more. I made a double batch and it barely frosted 18 cupcakes. I had to make more for the last 6

This is it! My mom’s recipe got lost. I have been searching for over an hour. The only difference is she never melted the Crisco. Using the butter flavor Crisco makes it even better. Thank you so much!!!!
