White Buttercream Frosting

1/2 cup Solid Vegetable Shortening

1 stick Butter (softened)

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

 Make frosting by mixing together the butter and 

shortening until combined. Add vanilla.

Add sugar a cup at a time until completely mixed 

together. Add milk a teaspoon at a time until you

reach your desired consistency. Divide the frosting 

in to 3 equal portions. Color each portion. One green,

one yellow, and one purple.

Crumble your baked yellow cake into 3 separate bowls.

Take some of the yellow frosting and add it to the

bowl of crumbled cake. Mix it together with your

hands until all of the cake is yellow. Do this again with 

the green and the purple.

Scoop the cake frosting mix using a small 

scoop on to a cookie sheet. Then roll the scoops into

 balls as shown above.

Melt your white chocolate in a double boiler.

Start dipping the cake balls in the white chocolate.

Place back on parchment.
