Birthday Frosting

This recipe is affectionately called Birthday Frosting by my beloved Mother.  It is the frosting that we always had on the Black Magic Cake that I posted earlier. 

Combine and mix well 4 tablespoons of flour and 1 cup of milk in a medium saucepan. 

Cook on medium high, stirring constantly until the mixture becomes a thick consistency.  It will look like a paste.  Refrigerate until cool.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of shortening and 1 cup of sugar.  If making chocolate frosting, add 1/2 cup of cocoa.

Cream together and beat well.

When the flour/milk mixture is cool, add to the shortening and sugar mixture.  Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla or flavoring of your choice. 

Beat until no sugar granules can be felt, and frosting is light and very smooth. 

Frost and enjoy!!!
