This recipe is very good. I used butter flavor shortening and didn't use the butter flavor extract. I also doubled the cocoa powder to 4tbsp because I wanted to. Probably didn't use as much red coloring as I could have but the color has no bearing on the taste anyway. Initially I wasn't going to do the frosting but was intrigued by the technique of 'cooking' the milk with flour (had never done a frosting with flour in it). However, I made it with half cream cheese and half butter instead of shortening. It came a bit soft because the only cream cheese I had was fat-free... but it was delicious.
