Creamy White Frosting

Picture will appear in Ginger Shortbread recipe tomorrow. Feel free to add food colors. I've used both paste and liquid with this recipe.

1 cup shortening
1 ½ tsp vanilla
¾ tsp almond extract
4 ½ cups powdered sugar
3-4 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp butter

Beat shortening, butter, vanilla, and extract with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Slowly, add half of the powdered sugar, beating well. Add 2 Tbsp milk. Gradually beat in remaining powdered sugar and enough remaining milk to make of spreading consistency. Frosts tops and sides of two 9-inch cake layers.
