Finally, a cookbook exclusively for frosting! Author Heather Saffer won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, owns Dollop Gourmet Cupcakery in upstate New York and publishes this cookbook next week. We thought we’d preview one of the standout recipes for frosting we’d smear (schmear?) on just about anything. It’s a fruit and cheese pairing in itself.

I refuse to eat lunch. The thought of tomato soup at noon or pepperoni pizza at 1 p.m. sends my anxiety soaring. That’s why this Strawberry Balsamic Goat Cheese Frosting is so revolutionary! It’s like cheese and fruit — in frosting form. Even better, the Strawberry Balsamic Reduction can double as a salad dressing for dinner. Yum!
