A family birthday is coming up soon and I want to make an alternative to the cake that everyone else will be eating. In general I don't agree with replacing SAD sweets with paleo sweets, but I'm making an exception for my grandfather's 88th birthday! I need help with the frosting! I'm looking for something that:
- uses either coconut milk or cream cheese (or both) as the base (rather than coconut or other shortening).
- can be frozen after icing the cake and won't turn inedible
- uses minimal sweetener
- is white (not chocolate or other flavors... so my cake looks like everyone else's cake!)
Thank you for your help!
PS For the cake I was thinking of using this recipe (Paleo Chocolate Birthday Cake)
2/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup high quality cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt
1/2 cup coconut oil (butter or ghee), melted (more for greasing pans) [I plan on using butter]
3/4 cup maple syrup [I plan to reduce this amount]
1/2 cup brewed coffee (or water)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
parchment paper for lining cake pans
