"Yum.... It frosted an orange creamsicle cake! http://www.food.com/recipe/dreamsicle-creamsicle-cake-73778
Like the cake, the frosting was really easy! I like easy... =)
The granulated sugar made it taste grainy, so I kept beating for another five minutes. Would you believe that made all the difference in the world? It didn't taste like play-doh like I thought it would. It was so good! This is a keeper!"
"Yes! Despite all the butter, this is so light and fluffy and it will be a staple. I have slaved over the boiled fluffy white frosting before and hated the standard butter/powered sugar frosting. This is something a "frosting hater" would warm up to. If my choosey hubby and my five year old gave me thumbs up, then I know I have a winner! Thank you!"
"When I first tasted this frosting I was skeptical but it really really grew on me. It has almost a custardy taste - very addictive. I will definitely be making this one again!"
"I was looking for something different and not full of powdered sugar. I was hesitant with this not because of the flour/milk, but because of the granulated sugar which can sometimes make frosting "gritty." Boy was I wrong to be worried - this frosting is absolutely delightful!! Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Same recipe my grandmother passed on to me (from her mother). Best from-scratch recipe I have ever tasted or used. Thank you for posting it."
"This turned out to have the taste of vanilla custard, with a lighter whipped texture. I don't know that I would use it to frost a cake, but it worked really well as a filling for a 9x13 sheet cake. It was my first time using a recipe for frosting that included the cooked milk/flour paste so I didn't know what to expect. Thank you!"
"This is the recipe my mother made. It is delicious and hardly anyone will take the time to make it these days, but boy is it worth the effort. Great recipe!!"
"Could not find the frosting recipe passed on by my mother and grandmother in any of my recipe holders, so glad to find this as it's exactly the one they made!"
