I'm trying to do a "lower sugar" cake for my little's birthday. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for an icing that could be shaped into spike-types that didn't have tons of powdered sugar? Anyone tried to use some flour and/or cornstarch as thickeners?
(I'm doing a Dr. Seuss-y cake and wanted to do a Thing 1 and 2 type hair...)
AThis is a great recipe and uses very little sugar.
While not so much "sugar"...it's quite sweet!
But it did get me thinking...I don't do dairy but little one has done fine with it. I could do a whipped cream icing.
AHave you tried the recipe? I don't find it that sweet at all. Whipped cream would work too.
AI would use Swiss Meringue Buttercream. It's not very sweet :)
