  • 2While cake is baking , mix the 5 tbs. flour and milk into a pan and stir constantly on med, high until mixture thickens almost into a ball. Take off stove put into large bowl and cover and refrigerate until cold
  • 3After cake and flour mixture are cool, mix the butter, and or shortning and sugar and vanilla into misture and beat on high with mixture until frosting doesn't taste grainy from sugar. You can also add a little cocoa if you would like chocolate, We like it without and it tastes almost like whipped cream , spread onto cake Hope you enjoy., It is not a real sweet frosting. I usually make a double batch of frosting because my kids like it that way.
