    HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE,I had to scrape it off the cake just to eat the cake. It was like eating raw lard and sugar granules....all that butter and sugar... whoever thought the sugar gave the icing an "interesting texture" is...questionable at the least!

    this sounds good..the only icing i've ever made was butterscotch and i didn't really like it..too..buttery xD
    and hten i made the lemonjuice-and-confectioners-sugar-thingi that goes super hard..but does taste good..
    i'm going to try this...despite the 'comments'...
    just a question. what's crisco?? i googled it and is it like shortening?? or can i just use a cup of butter instead of 1 stick and halfcup crisco?

    Hello there,
    I'm sorry you had to put up with the ____ that by the sounds of it shouldn't be on a site like this.
    I don't know why some people feel the need to over-react to something? Oh well....
    I was wondering, where did you find this recipe?
    It looks like an old fashioned recipe.
    Have you ever tried making it with Butter-Flavored Crisco?
    Just curious...

    **LOL** I'm sorry to be laughing, but I dropped down here to leave you a comment and ran into those 2 comments that were...errr...rather rude, shall we say? I did notice, however, they are not active members. Anyway....on with MY comment. I remember making this kind of frosting back in the late 60's and 70's. It is very good. I haven't thought of it in years. I'm so glad glad you shared it. I want to make it again. Your instructions were perfect. It's the same deal as why do some people have lumpy gravy...technique. Again, thanks for sharing!! - Linda (yeah, I'm one too) :-)

    this is a great recipe. we decided to bake a cake on the fly tonight but didn't have any confectioner's sugar to whip up some frosting and this worked out perfectly. to those who called it lumpy, you probably should have added the flour to the milk more slowly while wisking to avoid lumps--the same as when you make gravy. who the hell says grody anymore?

    I made your icing last week - sorry it took so long to get here with my comments! I almost always make buttercream frosting, so this was a delicious and different alternative! It is sweet, but not intensely sweet like buttercream. The texture with the slight crunch of the sugar was interesting. I found your directions easy to follow. Having made pudding from scratch, as I expect many members have, I didn't find anything unusual about the direction to cook to pudding stage. It was very descriptive of the consistency you wanted! When cooked to this stage it was anything but watery and sticky. I'm not the world's greatest photographer, but I'm posting the picture I took showing how pretty it turned out. Great recipe! Thanks for posting!

    dear Linebb956,

    your icing sucked!!!! i was desperately looking for a really good icing recipe, also known as the best ever icing, and i stumbeled upon yours. yeah well your title is a lie! it was totally graody. it waasreally watery and sticky and looked like cum!!! who wants to eat cum on top of there sprinkle cake? and for you zena824, idk what you made but it sure as hell was not this recipe. i have made many cakes with icing on them in my life time and i must admit you win the prize.. of worst! and bob, yeah you right. confectioners sugar would have made the whole thing a crap load better. and for the pudding stage, who refers things to pudding? it was clearly yogurt like!! i guess when the peoeple in the 70s were eatting this subtance, they must have been high off of the green brownies.

    happy cooking!
