Yeah, funny topic, a cake decorator looking for a low fat frosting recipe, who ever heard of such a thing, right!? icon_eek.gif

Well, since April I've been on Weight Watchers and have lost 65 pounds. So recently, I'm interested in how to make lower fat recipes to offer my clients. The cake recipes aren't a problem, beucase there's loads of things you can do to lower the fat/calorie count in cakes.

However... when it comes to a good frosting or icing that I need to pipe, cover and deocrate with.... how do you cut the fat/sugar in THAT??

Anyone got a recipe they've tried?

Royal icing and fondant have little/no fat, but not necessarily to everyone's taste. Poured fondant is also good for covering, but everything else I can think of (any kind of buttercream, ganache etc), is fat laden (and therefore IMO, dleicious!). Congrats on your weightloss, I lost 40lb on WW about 5 years ago but have since regained all but 5lb or so! I keep trying to get back into it but just don't have the motivation right now.
