Homemade Cupcake Frosting

I just usually sprinkle with chocolates or candies or use store bought frosting to make my cakes pretty. Now, I have finally made my own cupcake frosting. Yay.

I have tried a couple of frosting recipes I found online using ingredients that I always have at home. But none seems to be good enough to decorate cakes. It's either too runny or too lumpy. I probably  didn't follow the exact amount of ingredients  or hastened some of the cooking processes thats why nothing worked. Today, I diligently followed the process but still didn't follow the listed ingredients. But still, this frosting turned out well.

Mix  half cup milk and 1 1/1 Tbsp flour in a saucepan and heat while whisking continuously for about 8 mins or until the mixture looks like thick glue. Let it cool. Mix 100g melted butter and half cup sugar using electric beater for about 3 minutes or until the mixture forms peaks. Combine the 2 mixtures together and beat for another 3mins or until you get your desired consistency. You may now use it to frost your already cool cupcakes. But since the climate here is very hot, I let my frosting cool again in the fridge to stiffen so that it will be easier to decorate my cupcakes using my piping syringe. You can also sprinkle candies or chocolate chips over the frosting as you like.

The recipe is actually good for frosting 5- 6 cupcakes. (Not in photo is the one I ate.)

*I used this recipe for reference :  Creamy frosting
