Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a mixer, mix the shortening and vanilla until creamy.
  2. Add ½ cup of powdered sugar and mix well. Repeat with remaining powdered sugar.
  3. Add a little milk at a time to help give the icing a creamy consistency.
  4. To make the pink coloring, combine the raspberries and water in a small sauce pan.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer for approximately 5 minutes.
  6. Use a food processor to puree the raspberry mixture.
