This is the recipe I share with you today. There are no difficulties in preparation. Just follow the steps as described and you will have a guaranteed success. Add or alter ingredients according to your taste. The yoghurt frosting and the bacon for the decoration can be prepared well ahead thus reducing the cooking time.

I have only one note. The yoghurt frosting is a bit spicy, therefore pay attention on the addition of mustard so that you do not come up with a too “hot” frosting.

Good Luck and enjoy !
