Raw egg yolk substitue for frosting recipe?

I am in the middle of making a chocolate cake from one of the Barefoot Contessa books and just realized the chocolate frosting calls for one raw egg yolk. Problem is, I am taking the cake to a dinner party tomorrow and I am pregnant and so is another woman who will be there and we're not supposed to eat raw eggs. Any idea what the best substitute would be for the yolk without compromising consistency in the frosting?
