Sweet and Savory Sundays: Light Cream Cheese Frosting
I was extremely excited and motivated to bake a cake tonight. I had a fabulously delicious concoction in my head and I couldn’t WAIT to try it out. Well, as I gathered my ingredients I noticed I was missing two essential ones; butter and eggs. I could have gone to the store but it’s about 15 degrees outside and I’m in my pjs. So it had to be plan B. I was craving something sweet and these cravings must not go unsatisfied. So after I scoured my fridge and pantry, I found the proper ingredients to whip up another delicious and light dessert; cream cheese frosting! Now, I’ve been known to eat frosting alone and this is delicious enough to dig right in with a spoon, but I had a better idea. Instead of spoon feeding myself, I dipped some fresh strawberries in it! The tangy and creamy texture of the frosting with the juicy and sweet taste of the strawberry make for one delectable and healthy dessert!
