$300 Icing

Don't know where this recipe originated, just that it's been around my family for a long time. A very different method of making an icing, however, if you don't like the traditional powdered sugar ones, this is very light & doesn't taste as sweet. It is fantastic and a little thicker when cream cheese is substituted for butter.

  • This first part is best made ahead to allow for cooling. In a small sauce pan, mix flour into milk, then heat on low heat, stirring constantly until mixture resembles a thick pudding. Cover and let cool.
  • In a separate bowl, cream butter with sugar.
  • Add vanilla and blend until smooth.
  • Add first mixture after fully cooled.
  • Decorate as usual. Should be able to ice one 8x8 cake. Excellent for Carrot Cake when using Cream Cheese.
  • Note - this is not a good recipe to sit out of refrigerator for too long, unlike the powdered sugar icings.

    I have made a recipe just like this for years. The cream cheese route sounds excellent. This recipe is also very good on a chocolate cake. My mother makes it with a white milk cake that she has cut in half a spread with raspberry jam. She then uses this icing and sprinkles it with mini chocolate chips.
