My mom is a baker and she specializes in all types of cakes. She is famous for them but the secret is Mom’s Famous White Icing. No matter what type of cake, we always have to have her special icing. I swear, anything would taste great with that icing! I do need to warn you though, she makes it with Crisco instead of butter so if you eat too much, you’ll get that film on the roof of your mouth — just like when you eat Captain Crunch. Anyways, onto the recipe…
- 1 ½ Cup Milk
- 7 Tablespoons of Flour or 4 Tablespoons of Cornstarch
- Mix together in a small saucepan and heat slowly on low, stirring constantly until thick. Cool completely before continuing.
- 1 ½ Cup Sugar
- 1 ½ Cup Crisco or Butter
- 2 Teaspoons Vanilla
- In a bowl add the sugar and Crisco or butter, gradually beat in the flour/milk mixture. Add the vanilla and beat until fluffy.
