“A light tasting whipped frosting suitable for filling a rolled cake or whoopee pies. Great on angel food cake. Never fails as long as you don't let it cool uncovered or a skin will form on the paste.”

I LOVE this frosting! At first it seemed a peculiar recipe, but it comes out really creamy and it tastes great - no overly sweet icing sugar flavor here! I think its' the perfect balance of heavy and light. In response to the previous review, be sure to add the flour slowly with a sprinkling motion and whisk constantly. I have added cocoa powder to this recipe and it makes a delightful chocolate frosting as well! (I didn't note how much.. just sprinkle it in to taste) 5 stars well deserved!



I used corn oil (cut in half the amount of shortening from the recipe) , low-fat milk,and butter, instead of shortening, whole milk, and margarine. The recipe still turn out well. I also used a hand mixer to mix the ingredients together. It ended up looking exactly like whipped frosting, the recipe I was looking for.



My neighbor gave me a recipe like this one many years ago, only hers had 3 T flour and 1 cup solid shortening, no butter. This is one of the best frostings I have ever made. It is very creamy, looks like whipped cream and taste great too. It does take a little time to prepare, since it has to be cooked and cooled, but well worth the extra time. This cake will need to be stored in a cool place since the frosting contains milk.
