A few days ago, Bob announced that he needed a snack. This is a cue for me to surprise him with some yummy raw treat. I was in the middle of a recipe creation so I sliced up a perfectly ripe pear and served it with a few sliced of Vegan Swiss Cheese. I didn’t think it was anything special but he raved how wonderful it was and loved the pairing of the two.
Pears are tricky. Most people don’t know what to do with them and tend to eat them before they hit their prime. An unripe pear isn’t anything to get overly excited about so I can’t blame someone for overlooking them in the grocery store. A person just needs to give the pear a little love, time and patience and they will reward you in kind.
Anyway, Bob was sitting on the couch and just mentioned that I ought to make a pear frosting. No need to say more… done and done! :) I thew some cashews into the soak water and carried on with my current creation. The next day, I whipped up a Honey Pear Frosting. As I was about done, I called for Bob the Taste Tester (his official title) and got the thumbs up. I poured it into a jar so I could chill it in the fridge. Bob asked, I delivered and now what? Now I need something to put it on. I sense a new cake creation on the horizon. hehe
Because this frosting has fresh fruit in it, it won’t last as long as some of the other frosting recipes on my site. I give this frosting 2 days expiration, 3 tops. It has a medium texture and can used in a piping bag but if it sits out for an extended period of time, it will start to soften.
I wanted to show you what it looked like when I piped it onto a cupcake. Very creamy!
