This is an old flour
cake frosting recipe from my Aunt Jennie. She called it Flour Icing. I've had it for
years. I remember being at her home and she made this incredible white cake and
frosted it with this fluffy yummy icing and I asked her for the recipe and like
the sweetie that she was/is, she shared.
