Nothing makes a fruit geek feel more loved on their special day than a homemade birthday cake using rare tropical fruit! Because the cottony fruit of inga beans is known for its party-in-a-pod flavor of spun sugar and delicate cinnamon, we thought a fluffy inga bean frosting should be a thing.
In this recipe, heavy cream is infused overnight with delicate chunks of inga bean fruit to add sugary fragrance and flavor. The inga bean infused cream is then whipped together with cream cheese for a lightly sweetened frosting that’s as perfect for frosting as it is between layers of cool, freshly baked cake. Keep reading to learn how to make this easy, all-ages celebration cake frosting recipe using inga beans!
INGA BEAN CAKE FROSTING
Inga bean frosting begins by cold infusing heavy cream overnight with fresh, cotton ball chunks of inga bean fruit. Then, sweet softened cream cheese is combined with freshly infused inga bean cream to create a frosting that’s sturdy yet light, with a creamy canvas that makes inga bean’s cotton candy ice cream flavor shine!
Enjoy this creamy confection starring inga bean fruit on pound cake, as a cake frosting or spread on some simple toast. Gently fold in the reserved inga bean flesh from the cream infusion into the frosting for a chunkier texture that makes a ridiculously delicious cookie dip. Enhance the flavor of this inga bean frosting using warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.
