Dream Whip Frosting:

1 oz package of dream whip
1/2 C cold water
2 t vanilla
1 T butter
3 T whipping cream
2 C shortening
2 lbs powdered sugar
1 1/2 t almond flavoring

Combine dream whip, water, vanilla and almond flavoring with a mixer until combined on low, increase speed to high and whip until mixture begins to look fluffy.

Add shortening, whipping cream and butter.  Combine with mixer on low speed, scraping sides of bowl as needed.  Once combined mix on high for approximately 2 minutes.  It should look like frosting at this point.  Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition.
