The Best Ever Frosting

I wouldn't say
that this is my
favorite type of frosting
I prefer a cream cheese frosting

this frosting is
really very yummy
even if you get it
all over your face

The Best Ever Frosting

5 Tablespoons Flour
1 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Butter
1 cup Granulated Sugar (not Powdered Sugar!)

In a small saucepan
whisk flour into milk
and heat, stirring constantly
until it thickens

You want it to be very thick
thicker than cake mix
more like a brownie mix is
Remove from heat
let it cool to room temperature
It must be completely cool
before you use it in the next step
Stir in vanilla.

While the mixture is cooling
cream the butter and sugar together
until light and fluffy
You don’t want any sugar graininess left

Then add the completely
cooled milk/flour/vanilla mixture

beat the living daylights out of it
If it looks separated
you haven’t beaten it enough!
Beat it until it all combines
and resembles whipped cream.
you can add food coloring
at this point also

then put the yummy frosting
onto the cupcakes
and let the kids decorate

then let them dig in
and enjoy
