Just as I did with my Cinnamon Sweet Potato Icing, with this frosting I was aiming for a light, low fat icing.
I still remember when a coworker first told me about a recipe she had seen with brownies and sweet potato icing. She was going to bring in the recipe for me to see, but I told her no thank you. You see when I see a picture or hear of a food I start getting inspired you thinking. I really enjoy figuring out how to make foods work together without seeing someone else’s recipe first.
I was intrigued… Hmm sweet potato as a base for an icing. It almost seems as though there is a ping pong ball bouncing throughout my head with lovely ides and combinations that work well together.
This icing is so lovely. Light and fluffy enough to fool anyone… No one would every know how good it is for you!
I am completely happy with the results, as are all the people who have tried it! 🙂
One of my taste testers, (who has no food allergies) even asked me for the recipe before it was posted so she could make it for her birthday cake.
