A light tasting whipped frosting suitable for filling a rolled cake or whoopee pies. Great on angel food cake. Never fails as long as you don't let it cool uncovered or a skin will form on the paste.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup margarine
