Creamy Delicious Cake Frosting Recipe

Frosted Cake

If you’ve ever noticed that not all icings are created equally, you’re definitely right. Many icings are so sweet, they take away from the deliciousness of your cake or cupcakes.

Well, this recipe is different. It’s creamy and has just the right sweetness.

Creamy Delicious Cake Frosting Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons cacao
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk the flour and milk until thickened. Once it is thickened, set it aside and allow to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add the flour and milk mixture and continue to beat with the mixer until the icing is light and fluffy. Add the cacao or a food coloring of your choice part way through the mixing process.

The frosting keeps well in the fridge for about 1 week. Just make sure to mix it well before using, so it will have a creamy texture again.

  1. When do you add the sugar?

    • Angela, thanks so much for bringing this to my attention! I always forget to add one of my steps when writing the recipe. LOL! You add it with the butter and vanilla. I have updated the recipe now. :-)

  2. I’ve tried this recipe twice and both times my icing is a little runny and looks separated no matter how long I beat it. I’ve followed the recipe exactly as it states. Has this happened to anyone and what can I do differently? I want it to turn out so bad!!! Thank you!
