Flour Frosting

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Leta8076

A great light frosting that is less sweet than the traditional buttercream frostings.

This is the BEST frosting! I use butter instead of margarine (with any recipe I do that) and the recipe may sound a bit odd, but it is absolutely worth it and doesn't taste odd at all! It is especially good with rich, dark chocolate cake. It is a bit more work than traditional home-made frostings but everyone loves it the best! Tasting is believing :)~
