What would it taste like if you could put fresh Dragon Fruit, Strawberry, and Blueberry into your cake frosting? It'd taste berry much like our Dragon Berry Frosting!
Chocolate cake with freshly toasted coconut flakes added to the middle layer is one of the few cakes that pleases the whole family in our household. So this year we went a step further with the addition of our dragon fruit inspired powder—Dragon Berry.
This wonderfully pink chocolate cake frosting uses our Dragon Berry powder in a buttercream icing to create an appealing and absolutely delicious topping for any cake—not just chocolate cakes!
The frosting has a slight tangy zip like you get when eating fresh berries, but finishes off with berry notes, and a flavor almost like that of a cordial cherry.
The powder blends well into the frosting, plus it's easy to use since there is no pureeing required. Just scoop out the Dragon Berry powder and add it to your frosting mixture.
Dragon Berry Frosting Recipe
- In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer beat the butter until smooth.
- Gradually add powdered sugar and milk (alternating between the two) while mixing at low speed.
- Once ingredients are mostly blended, add in Dragon Berry powder.
- If frosting seems too thick, add a bit more milk. If frosting seems too runny, add in more powdered sugar. For even brighter color or more berry taste, use additional Dragon Berry powder as desired.
Recipe makes enough wonderful frosting for a two-layer 9-inch round cake.
