  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottom of a 8" square baking dish with parchment paper.

  5. Add steamed sweet potato and rest of ingredients for frosting to food processor and puree for 3-5 minutes until completely smooth. Optional: after pureed, press frosting through a strainer to remove any lumps of remaining lemon zest flakes for a totally smooth result. Chill frosting in freezer in a large metal bowl for about 15+ minutes or until it reaches buttercream frosting consistency and is cooled down.
  6. Frost cake as desired and top with chopped pecans (optional, but delicious).
