I have been using this recipe for years. I make the chocolate version by substituting 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of cocoa powder and adding an additional 1/4 cup milk. (For more buttery flavor try adding 1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring)

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
5 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 cup milk

In a large bowl, cream butter and shortening until light and fluffy. Add salt, flavorings, confectioners sugar and milk. Beat well.
