“This is my family's traditional angel food cake frosting. It is so very rich that it may be complete overkill on a sweeter, heavier cake. My grandmother made many a birthday cake using this recipe. In fact, the photograph that I have included is from my older brother's 2nd birthday in March 1961!”

  2. Boil and stir for at least one minute.
  3. Take the saucepan off the heat and add the milk.
  4. With a hand mixer beat in the powdered sugar, one cup at a time until the spreading consistency is right for you.
  5. It should not be a very thick consistency for angel food cake, because it will harden as it cools.
