Easy Greek Yogurt Frosting



Every time I make a cake, I dread making the frosting.

Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that I can sample the frosting as much as my heart desires (and my heart desires a lot of frosting) but I just hate how much icing sugar I need to put in, and how it would probably be cheaper to buy the frosting in the containers..

Well, I decided that I should just stop complaining, and do something about my frosting crisis. And I'm glad I did.

This frosting was a little runny, I may add more icing sugar next time, but boy was it easy. If you are pressed for time making a cake, I would recommend making this icing.




What you'll need:

-1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
-1/2 cup powdered sugar


Directions:

    1.   Whisk together the ingredients together until fully combined. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Spread over a cake or cupcakes.

  2. Mmm, great idea to use greek yogurt for frosting! My fave easy frosting is to make a cream cheese frosting but then fold in a container of cool whip. It makes it so much lighter, and less cloyingly sweet.

  6. Thanfully I'm not a big fan of cake frosting too, but this is a different one. Infact there's a dessert from India which has very thick yoghurt, sugar and saffron.
