I made the 'GOB' frosting with the milk & flour mixture. It came together fine, tastes real good. I added some strawberry fruit spread as I wanted a strawberry creme filling for my cake. Its too soft. I used a dam but I know once itthe cake is cut, it will just ooze out...and we all know its never good when anything oozes... Any suggestion to thicken it? I was thinking since it is not a 'sweet' frosting I could use some PS, but really unsure. Ideads Anyone????

No PS.

Dissolve some strawberry jello in a minimum amount of water and fold that in--it will stiffen up. How much? I don't know how much icing you have.

In future, you can use strawberry juice instead of the milk. TOTAL liquid has to be the volume in the recipe.
