About this recipe: This is a wonderful buttercream frosting recipe, great for almost any cake out there. Perfect for those homemade birthday cakes or cupcakes for a school fete. Unlike most buttercream frosting recipes, this calls for caster sugar instead of icing sugar.
Really not impressed with this. I'm sure I'm doing it wrong, but I followed the instructions as stated. The milk and flour took well over 45 minutes to form a ball as described, and once it was cool it was a solid lump. Ended up with disgusting little lumps of chewy flour goo peppering the frosting, and it's all ruined. - 28 Aug 2012
This is probably the best frosting EVER, Super easy to make, so creamy that it could be cream. - 20 Aug 2011
Altered ingredient amounts. I made a roux with some of the butter and then cooked out the flour before adding the warmed milk. this worked really well...Then followed the receipe as stated - 27 Feb 2011
