  • ½ cup Butter
  • 1 cup Shortening
  • ¾ cup Mango puree
  • 5- 6 cups Sugar Powdered
  • 1 tsp Mango extract I get mine from Bakto Flavors
  • Yellow gel coloring optional
  • 1 tsp Meringue powder for stability but this is also optional


  • In a mixing bowl, add butter and shortening and mix until there are no lumps.
  • Add mango puree and mango extract and mix until everything is just combined.
  • Slowly, add powdered sugar and meringue powder and continue mixing until everything is incorporated and you have a smooth mixture. Enjoy!


– If the consistency of your icing is too thin, add some more powdered sugar (1/4 cup at a time) to thicken it.
– If the consistency of your icing is too thick, add some more mango puree (1 tbsp at a time) to thin it out.
– This frosting is enough for filling and icing one 8×2 cake or 24 cupcakes.
