Winter Wonderland Cake featuring the Ultimate Sweet Potato Frosting

The holidays can be indulgent at times but your cake frosting doesn't have to be. Make this Winter Wonderland Cake with healthier sweet potato frosting today!

We all know the holidays are filled with yummy baked goodies such as cakes, cookies, pies, and more. We also know that chocolate cake decorated with edible Christmas trees is a must! And what's a cake without frosting? We set out to make a healthier version and created a creamy sweet potato frosting that we know you're going to love!

Below, we've included directions on how to make this recipe with raw sweet potatoes. You can also use canned sweet potatoes if thats all you have or you're in a pinch and don't have an hour to wait for the sweet potato to cook in the oven. 

Important tips to remember

Make sure that your cake layers are completely cool to room temperature before frosting them. If you frost them while they're still warm, the frosting will not stay in place and become difficult to work with. Another thing to keep in mind, after blending together all your ingredients for the frosting, set it aside  for a few moments to allow it some time to thicken up. Also note that frosting should be blended until smooth and creamy.

Directions:

  • Poke holes in your sweet potato with a fork and wrap in aluminum foil. Cook in the oven at 350F for about an hour, or until soft. Set aside to cool. 
  • Melt PASCHA Chocolate until smooth. Place your mashed sweet potato, melted PASCHA Chocolate, and canned coconut milk in a blender or food processor. Blend until creamy. Set aside to thicken slightly.
