Awesome recipe!!! The buttercream is light and delicious and not too sweet but also holds it shape enough to pipe! Perfect.

This recipe is flawless as is if you do it right. It's light,fluffy,and not too sweet. Only tip I can possibly give is whisk the milk and flour vigorously so it doesn't get lumpy and don't over cook it. Amazing recipe!
