Let’s say you’ve found a great low carb cake recipe. You really want to try it, but who wants plain cake? You think to yourself “there’s no way I can even think about frosting this cake or I’ll turn a great low carb snack into a sugar-laden, diet-busting disaster!” Worry no more. Pillsbury’s here with a great reduced sugar cream cheese frosting. Don’t get us wrong, you won’t be able to eat a dozen cupcakes slathered with this stuff. You will, however, be able to enjoy a sensible piece of that new cake with a touch of delightful frosting. This frosting tastes very similar to most cream cheese frostings we’ve had before. The texture might be slightly more creamy than your average cake frosting, but this does not detract from the taste at all. We also tried it as a thin coating on some low carb shortbread cookies and it was delightful. Go ahead. Treat yourself – you deserve it! We can’t wait to try the other flavors.
