I love a good frosting that's not too sweet. The perfect combination of creamy and sugar transforms that little cake into a deliciously magical thing that's also just a bit nostalgic. Bitting into one takes me back to birthday parties of my youth, which makes this adult version a big hit.

Whipped Yogurt Buttercream Frosting

From Sarah Lipoff, POPSUGAR Food

Yogurt Frosting


  1. 1 cup Greek yogurt, strained
    2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 cup powdered sugar


  1. Place the Greek yogurt in a paper towel-lined strainer and let sit in the refrigerator for 4 hours. Remove and gently press the yogurt with the paper towel, releasing any remaining liquid.
  2. Add the yogurt to a medium mixing bowl and add the room temperature butter, vanilla, and salt. Whip on high until the ingredients come together.
  3. Slowly incorporate half of the powdered sugar, mixing on high. Then add the other half, finishing with a final mix on high for 10 to 15-seconds.
  4. Use for topping your next batch of cupcakes!
