For low-FODMAP Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Using the flat paddle attachment of your stand mixer, beat the butter or low-FODMAP vegan spread and lactose-free cream cheese until creamy
  • Add the strawberry coulis and vanilla, and beat until combined
    • It may seem a bit clumpy at this point, don’t worry it will smooth out with the sugar addition
  • Slowly add in the confectioner’s sugar until well creamed, and smooth, scraping down the bowl as necessary
    • For a soft, spreadable frosting you may only need 2.5 cups sugar, but if you want to pipe your frosting it will need to be a bit thicker
  • Spread, or pipe over your preferred dessert, or prep with the layer chocolate cake as per below!

To decorate low-FODMAP Happy Baking Chocolate Cake:

  • When cake is cooled, frost layers and middle as desired, then chill in your fridge prior to adding the ganache
  • Spread and drizzle slightly cooled low-FODMAP Chocolate Ganache over top and garnish with fresh strawberries or chocolate strawberries
  • Refrigerate if not serving immediately, allow to come to room temperature for best flavor
