I used to have a recipe for cooked frosting. The base of flour and milk was cooked to a thick paste. As this cooled, equal parts of butter and shortening along with some sugar, a bit of vanilla, and a dash of salt was whipped until light and fluffy. Then the cooled paste was folded in. It was terrific because it was not too sweet, could be used to decorate cakes, and was very smooth. Thank you!

Cook flour and milk together, stirring constantly until thick and then let cool. Mix in a bowl the remaining ingredients. Now add cooled flour mixture to this. Beat for 15 minutes with a mixer. This makes it fluffy. Frosting is now ready to put on your cake.

7 minute frosting. (It's so good you want to eat it with a spoon!)
Place sugar, cream of tartar or corn syrup, salt, water, and egg whites in the top of a double boiler. Beat with a handheld electric mixer for 1 minute. Place pan over boiling water, being sure that boiling water does not touch the bottom of the top pan. (If this happens, it could cause your frosting to become grainy.) Beat constantly on high speed with electric mixer for 7 minutes. Beat in vanilla.
