White Frosting
Fabulous. I changed the servings from 12 to 16 because I like plenty of frosting and don't want to worry about being short when I'm frosting the sides of cakes. I used my immersion blender's whisk attachment to blend the flour into the milk before heating it and with just a few stirs while bringing to a boil it came out so smooth. I creamed the shortening (crisco) butter and sugar before adding the cooled flour/milk paste spoon by spoon and even added an extra 1/2 cup sugar as I wanted it just a touch sweeter. Anyone who had problems with the graininess must've not beaten it long enough. I used my kitchenaid standing mixer and that does a great job with the whisk attachment. What I like so much about this frosting is it's not overly sweet so that I can use the sweeter decorating icing for decorating and guests don't have to scrape off frosting to enjoy the cake. This is very similar to my grandmother's frosting recipe. It would be a good filling for oatmeal cookie "sandwiches" as well. Definitely a keeper!!

Honey Limeade
very refreshing! the honey is a great touch. i changed the recipe a little though... to avoid the sugar grittyness i made a simple syrup with sugar and water, added the honey to that, and steeped in some mint leaves. the result was smooth, fresh, and delicious... yum!!!
