Buttercream Frosting (best for cakes and cupcakes)

This is for you Michelle A.:) I got this from http://www.kevinandamanda.com/ just in case anyone wonders...and in case kevinandamanda think I am claiming it as my own...which I am not...giving credit where credit is due...
1 cup shortening (crisco)
4 cups powdered sugar (32oz)
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening until fluffy (mix on high). Add sugar (when you have stopped your mixer of course:) ) and continue creaming until well blended. Add salt, vanilla, and whipping cream. (you might find you need to add more depending on the consistancy you prefer) Beat at high speed until frosting is fluffy.
