Question by emmy: What is a delicious low calorie/low fat vanilla frosting recipe?
I am baking a cake for a birthday tomorrow. I am just using what we have in the pantry, Devil’s Food chocolate cake mix, unless I find something “healthier” while shopping. Are there any vanilla frosting mixes premade on the shelves that are low calorie and low fat? And if not, do you have a really good recipe for one? (if so, please list nutrition information along with it) Thanks!

You can try a low fat cream cheese frosting by using fat free cream cheese instead of the other stuff. The powdered sugar is going to add the calories but not the fat! And use lowfat milk to thin the mixture. You might also consider a “glaze” instead, since it goes on thin and drips down the sides of the cake. Or, you might want to simply make a very scrumptious cake and cut smaller slices!
