After the dry and wet ingredients are completely incorporated move the cake batter to a 9-inch round cake pan

Let cake completely cool before removing from pan

Ingredients: 
 
1 ½ cups cooked Japanese sweet potatoes (without the skin)
2 tbsp date sugar (or 1-2 pitted dates)
1/2 cup raw cashews 
1 tsp vanilla extract 
½ cup nondairy milk unflavored unsweetened  
 
 
Directions: 
 
In a high-speed blender add all the ingredients and blend until smooth 
 
If frosting is not sweet enough for your taste, add 1-2 extra pitted dates 
 
Frosting should be very thick consistency 
 
Place frosting into the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes until chilled 
 
Frost your cakes, brownies, or any dessert… I’ve even had the Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting with just fresh fruit! 
 
Tips: 
 
Roasted sweet potatoes in the oven is our favorite way of making this recipe more naturally sweet
