Most of my co-workers are on serious diets, so I thought I'd try an angel food, two piece, 3-D pumpkin cake. Any ideas on what would taste & look good as frosting to color it orange and cover the seem where the two parts meet? I was thinking of hollowing out part of the bottom and putting sugar free pudding in as a filling and making the stem out of fruit rolls-ups that they sell at the health food store made from real friut, no sugar added .
you could go ultra lot fat, and just put in some orange food dye, and have a bit more subtle, naked cake pumpkin.
low fat bc doesnt really exist! (i dont know about things like imbc, maybe they are lower calories?)
i think something like whipped cream would be a good option, although i dont know how that takes colour, and its not great for decorating with....
bound to be something on here about low cal icing, have you tried a search? although i know how hit and miss it can be!
Try Rich's whip or Bettercreme.
Thanks for the 2 ideas! I was considering the naked idea, but was worried the seam would look tacky. If I can get to Orlando I can get Bettercream, not avialable here .
Does not have to be really low cal as long as I use only a thin layer. Just never tried anything flavor wise with angel food. I've always served it with whipped cream and stawberries. Personally I like it straight out of the pan still warm, mmmm...
