Especially cupcakes. And more importantly, frosting. Frosting is my favorite part of the whole cupcake experience.
However, much to the dismay of a lot of my buttercream-loving foodie friends, I'm just not into it. It's way too sweet for moi. I like a little tang, a little zip. Which is why I've been a cream cheese frosting devotee forever and ever.
That all changed when artisan cheesemaker Tasia Malakasis (photo below) of the celebrated fromagerie, Belle Chevre, in Elkmont, Alabama, recently introduced me to the idea of chevre frosting.
Think of it as the more sophisticated, flavor-times-ten version of cream cheese frosting.
Wowza, it's good!
And Malakasis was nice enough to share the recipe and an amazing tutorial video below.
Ice cupcakes for your Valentine with this amazingness and all will be right in the world, swear.
