Red Velvet Cake with Mock Whipped Cream Frosting
1 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a double boiler cook the milk and flour until thick. Set aside to cool. With electric mixer, beat 1 cup sugar with 1 cup shortening at high speed until light and fluffy. Add cooled thickened mixture until mixed. Add vanilla and blend.
I usually do 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening, but if you want it more stable in hot weather, keep it all shortening!
