This delicious cooked frosting recipe was given to me by a co-worker, Judy Larson who also enjoys cooking and baking. You will never ever buy a plastic tub of frosting again! I have also done some research and many years ago, this was a Depression-era frosting also called Poorman's Frosting. It can also be colored with food coloring for extra flair. You must try it, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Cooked frosting is an old-fashioned way to make homemade frosting. It's silky smooth, fluffy, and slightly sweet with a texture similar to Swiss meringue buttercream. If you want to pipe something this frosting is perfect because it holds its shape. Give this cooked frosting a try the next time you bake a cake or whip up a batch of cupcakes.
