My dad, had a liver tumor and his gall bladder removed this March, hence he has to be on low fat diet.

He celebrated his 75th birthday last weekend. His favourite cake, as well as the family’s, is the sugee cake, which is extremely rich, and I have to resist myself from baking this for the occasion.

Just a few days before the weekend, I had a slice of boston cream pie at a neighbour’s. The cake was a very light sponge cake. The cake, without the cream, has very little fat, and hence something we can eat frequently without feeling guilty. She has kindly shared the recipe with me when I told her I would like to bake it for my father’s coming birthday.

To compliment the cake with a frosting which is low in fat, I searched around and found an extremely suitable frosting. It’s made with bean curd, and does not contain any oil, cream or butter at all, something those with special diet or those who wants a low fat cake can enjoy.

I had some grated baking chocolate sprinkled on top of the frosted cake, which enhances the taste and look.

Dad's Birthday Cake frosted with Soy Bean Cream

I love cream and butter, and all things fatty. I was skeptical about the outcome of the cake. However, this turned out quite tasty for something which is so low in fat. The creamy frosting tasted more like something made with cream cheese than bean curd (the feedback I got from my nephews and nieces). Although it’s not as tasty as butter cream or other full fat frosting, this is something you can enjoy without feeling guilty.

    Nice site! But I’m having some problems trying to load your blog. I have read it many times before and never gotten something like this, but now when I try to load something it just takes a little while (5-10 minutes ) and then just stops. I hope i don’t have spyware or something. Does anyone know what the problem could be?
