I LOVED the final result but was wondering if this frosting recipe has a 'better/real' name other then 'frosting'?
1 cup milk
3 tbs flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp flavoring
directions: beat sugar with butter. heat milk with flour. cool. combine the two (and flavoring) and beat until light and fluffy.
Is this a recipe that anyone recognizes under another name?
It almost has the consistency of whipped cream when done (when at room temp). and since it's all butter it firms up hard when put into the fridge.
I've only used it on cupcakes so far but since it firms up (when chilled) i wonder if it can be used like IMBC or SMBC and firmed up to make nice crisp edges when applied to cakes??
