I thought the frosting had good taste....Just not a good decorating frosting. I thought it was very time consuming. May use again on a cake that I won't be decorating.
Wonderful icing just did 3 gradulation cakes and it holds shape wonderfully. This is a keeper!!!!!
This is a great frosting. But I had to make two batches to have enough- but I had a three layer cake. Also it would help if you told people to mix the sugar and flour well before adding the milk. Thank You!
This is a great frosting. It's easy to make and easy to work with. Took a while to cool, but it was worth every minute!!
I topped the white cake with this frosting. Tastes just like Bakery Frosting. This was so good.
This frosting is excellent!! I was looking for a bakery type frosting and this one "takes the cake". It is not so super sweet like butter creme. I subbed butter for the shortening becuase I only had butter flavored shortening which is very yellow in color and wanted a more white frosting. I used this on your strawberry cake #22984 that I had made into cupcakes for my sons class at school. Thanks for a great recipe!
This was exactly what I needed.I made this to frost my son' birthday cake and it turned out great,we loved the taste and it does taste just like bakery frosting.The recipe is right on time and I did not change a thing!!!Will use this again.
Very good recipe! It was exactly what I was looking for! It made really bright and uniform icing when I coloured it! Thank you!!!
Yum ~ This frosting has a great taste that was approved by the whole family! The only negative is it was a bit time consuming, especially when you have five little ones asking, "Is it done yet?". Also, I made a double tiered cake (2 9" rounds) and this was not really enough frosting for that purpose. Next time, I would double the recipe for 2 rounds. Changes: the only change I made was I used 1/4 c. solid shortening AND 1/4 c. butter. I also used evaporated milk (it was all I had on hand). Tips: I whisked the flour, sugar & milk constantly as it was thickening - then I kept whisking most of the time it was cooling - just to be extra cautious about lumps. A bit labor intensive, but the results were quite tasty!!
I ran out of butter so I tried something this recipe tasted like grease and was runny I tried to fix it but to no avail. Rick
