Bland and watery...maybe I did something wrong, but definitely don't like the flour and milk part of this.
This is such a delicious icing. We call it Mock whipped cream. I use it on chocolate cakes., or pumpkin squares, any thing that you want a light tasting frosting. We love it. I think I used it the first time on a Red Velvet cake. I don't usually use shortening Just all butter or margarine.
