Vanilla Cake with Greek Yogurt Chocolate Icing (Sugar Free)



A simple vanilla cake topped with luxurious greek yogurt chocolate frosting for my Mister's birthday! As my Mister is diabetic, so I incorporated substitute sugar for both the cake and frosting. The cake actually turned out fantastic! We all loved the moist and tender crumbs and the healthier low fat chocolate frosting!
