In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and butter until fluffy.
Add sugar, one cup at a time, mixing a bit between each addition. When adding sugar, you will want to start the mixer slowly so it doesn't explode everywhere.
Continue creaming until well blended.
Add salt, vanilla, and 6 ounces whipping cream. Blend on low speed until moistened.
Beat at high speed until frosting is fluffy, 1-2 minutes.
