To the reviewer who gave it one star and said it was grainy...I think you may have had your butter too soft and you didn't spend enough time whipping. Because this is the CREAMIEST, FLUFFIEST, and most DELICIOUS frosting recipe ever. It is smooth and silky, not overly sweet, and not overly buttery.
"Until fluffy" really should say "at least 8 minutes" because it can be fluffy, but not all the sugar will have dissolved.
If you want an awesome orange frosting, add a teaspoon or two of orange extract and for color, add some orange food color. It tastes just like a 50/50 or Dreamsickle ice cream bar. I frosted my orange cupcakes with this and because it's less sweet than regular buttercream, my family loved it.
I also find that if you cook the flour and milk on low for a longer amount of time, you lose the floury taste. I whisked on low heat for about 10 minutes, and actually added a bit more milk to keep it from getting too clumpy. I now use 4 tablespoons of flour to the 1 cup of milk. Slow and low!
