Really delicious buttercream frosting

I just tried this recipe for frosting, and it's delicious! It's almost like whipped cream! I put it on chocolate cupcakes.

There's lots of pictures at the source. This is roughly the recipe, reworded for simplicity:

Ingredients: (use vegan versions, obviously)
1 cup milk
5 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter

Put flour and milk in a saucepan and place over medium heat. Whisk as it heats up until it gets really thick. Allow to cool completely. Add vanilla.

Cream butter and sugar together. Add cooled flour/milk/vanilla mixture, and beat with electric beaters until texture resembles whipped cream.
