Thermobexta’s Strawberry and Lime Cream Cheese Frosting

strawberry cakeThis is a simple recipe for a really delicious icing, with far less sugar than something like a buttercream (I do love buttercream, though!)

70g golden caster sugar
20g freeze dried strawberries
3 strips of lime zest (5g)
250g cream cheese
50g butter
30g milk
20g lime juice

1. Place sugar, strawberries and lime zest in clean, dry mixer bowl. Blitz for 30 seconds/speed 9/MC on. Scrape down sides of bowl.

2. Add cream cheese, butter, milk and lime juice. Blend for 10 seconds/speed 5/MC on. Scrape down sides of bowl. Repeat.

3. If frosting is too thick, add a splash more milk and blend for a few seconds/speed 5/MC on.

4. Use to ice a large cake (the one pictured is a 22cm double layer cake), or cupcakes, or use as a sweet dip for wedges of apple or strawberries.

For a plain strawberry cream cheese frosting, omit the lime zest and juice, increase the milk to 50g.
