Birthday Cake with Yogurt Frosting


Remember what I mentioned earlier that I hope to make a frosting birthday cake for my dear? Yes, mission accomplished! Though it didn't turned out as beautiful as those selling in bakery shop. But hey, this is my first time making a frosting cake without proper tools, so I think the result is still acceptable. :-)


The base is a chocolate cake. I make a 2 layers of it, with peach-yogurt sandwiched in between. Then, it is topped with yogurt, and decorated with peach and strawberry. This is so called my version of healthy frosting cake. About 750g of plain yogurt is prepared for the frosting purpose. After draining off the water from the yogurt, what's left is only 260g in cream cheese form.

This cake is dedicated to my dear on his special day. Happy Birthday, my dear!

New Kid, I used off the shelf plain yogurt. Thanks on behalf of hubby.

MeRy, thanks.

babe_kl, true also. At least I think hard how to make the yogurt frosting, and how to decorate the cake for him. Hehe...

Cooking Gallery, thanks. It tastes ok, but not as good as the one with whipping cream.

tigerfish, thanks. Yogurt frosting is not easy to handle.

the lacquer spoon, thank you!

Stella, thanks. Remember to drain the water first.
