Butter Cream Dream

This frosting is perfect. My friend, Trisha Faber passed this along to me. It is scrumptious and tastes much like the frosting you would find at a bakery.

1 stick of salted butter
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup of shortening
2 lb. bag of powdered sugar
3 tsp. vanilla extract
5-6 Tablespoons of milk

Cream together butters and shortening. Add vanilla, then powdered sugar. Add milk a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
