Webkinz Daisy Tortoise Birthday Cake... Icing Recipe

My kids (and me) totally love Webkinz! So- this is what I came up with for DD's birthday this week. She loved it! (and so did her brothers)
1/2 cup butter at room temp
1/2 cup shortening (or preferred fat)*
4 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/2 t vanilla
4 T milk
Beat butter and shortening until fluffy and smooth.
Add sugar, then vanilla, and lastly milk.
Mix until well blended and creamy. Color if desired.
***I've found that if I only use butter, the icing doesn't hold as well nor as long, especially during summer months, and lard and beef fat have too prominent a taste, otherwise I would not use shortening.
