It is safe to say that our cacao-sweet potato frosting is a firm favourite of yours....and ours. In fact, it takes all my self control not to sit with the bowl and eat it by itself with a big spoon when making an order.
This 'icing' alternative is light, yet decadent, whilst being full of vitamins +fibre (that helps stop any sugar rushes from the maple syrup). It holds firm for piping + decorating and best of all, it is super simple to make.
You are going to look at this recipe and go.. “whaaat”. Yes it is just that simple. I have to admit I have a habit of chucking it all in and tasting as I go. So I have laid out some guidelines below that give you a creamy, light frosting. Add more cacao for a richer taste, more maple if you like it sweeter or add a couple of teaspoons of coconut cream for some added decadence.
1 large sweet potato (about 270g once cooked and skinned)
100ml Maple syrup
30g Cacao powder (sieved)
A few dashes of plant based milk
Pinch of salt
So short + sweet for the first post, a bit like the time it takes to create this awesome icing.
