My son doesn't like frosting. I've tried ganache, American buttercream, and IMBC. He just doesn't like any of them. He does, however, like the cookies and cream cake from Target. (Honestly when he said that, I thought ICK! A store bought cake? I hate that nasty buttercream that places like Walmart use. I tried the Target one, though, and it was actually really good.)
I asked what kind of frosting it was, and they said it was a "whipped" frosting. It's light but not just whipped cream -- it has more body than that. It doesn't taste greasy, so I'm not sure what the base of it is. Does anyone know what type of frosting that is?
I found a thread where trishvanhoozer posted a recipe that sounded interesting. I've never made a frosting with flour in it before.
I plan to try it soon to see if that's anything like Target's frosting, but I just thought I would ask and see if any of you knew what I was talking about.
