Lisa's Whipped Frosting Recipe

Since my last post, several people have been asking me for my whipped frosting recipe (that I used on the Duckum's wedding cake).  People who don't like cupcakes couldn't stop eating these because of the frosting.  Some people even thought it was whipped cream.  This seems like the best way to get the word out, so if you are interested in an easy frosting recipe that tastes light and creamy and not too sweet, give it a try (and let me know what you think).


1 Cup whole milk
1 TBSP all purpose flour
1 TBSP corn starch
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 Cup unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract (or other flavoring)
1/4 tsp salt
color as desired

In a saucepan, combine milk, flour, and corn starch.  Cook and stir until mixture thickens, then cover and refrigerate until thoroughly cooled.  Then, in a stand mixer, cream together sugar, butter, and salt.  Add cooked milk mixture and vanilla and whip until fluffy.  This is the most important step!  Whip this frosting on medium-high speed  for at least 10 minutes.  If you test it and it's not awesome, that means you haven't whipped it long enough.  Keep whipping!  Also, you can make this the day before, but you will have to re-whip it before frosting a cake or cupcakes.


  1. Thanks Lisa! This was sooo yummy. Surprised there wasn't any whipped cream in it. It was so light and fluffy!

  2. Thanks for the recipe Lisa! I can't wait to try it out and see if I can make it as good as you can.


Thanks for reading our blog. We'd love to hear what you think.
