- Beat shortening and butter together then slowly add the sugar a cup at a time and mix.
- When all the sugar is mixed in add the vanilla and the milk and mix.
- If more milk is needed just add a tablespoon at a time. (If making mint buttercream frosting, add peppermint oil too!)
- Frost the cupcakes as desired
Note: for plain vanilla frosting, simply omit the peppermint extract and green food coloring. For chocolate frosting, omit peppermint extract and food coloring and add 2/3 cup cocoa powder.
Decorate with green mint frosting 🧁 and topping with mint chocolate Oreos, junior mints, chocolate chips, and of course The Child cupcake topper (please see below for the design we used, which you can print off for free! Print on matte photo paper for best results!). You can also use any decor you would like too (we would love to see the results)!
