I searched for this recipe many years and came across it on a bag of Robin Hood flour back in the early 80's. It took so long to find it because I didn't know what it was called. Anyone who hasn't tried this frosting recipe, you do not know what you are missing. It's almost like the white cream filling in snack cakes. I call it fabulous.

I made this and it tasted AWESOME! This is my 4th or 5th time making it. And I've mastered it. I think what helps when making it is using 2% milk rather than whole milk. Its turns out much smoother. My family loves this icing and so do I. Its so easy to make.
