Hi all,

Wondering if anyone has a good cf/gf recipe for frosting. There are many different cf/gf cake mixes available online and in the stores, but I haven't noticed frosting/icing. Are there any pre-made brands that you would recommend? If not, how 'bout recipes?

Little Man's bday is coming up next month, so I need to experiement. :)

I whip together cf butter (Fliechman's) and powdered sugar, it has been a while but I think it is equal parts cup:cup and add a few drops of water until you reach the desired consistency.

Alright! That's my kind of recipe -- simple and easy! :) Thanks.

Where do you find this c/f Fliechman's butter, btw? (We have some other cf margarine, but I'm curious about what others use, how it tastes, and where you find it)

Our grocery store carries it, it is a regular name brand, but I forgot one very important thing, make sure it is the UNSALTED variety, that is the one that is casein free.

:D

Easy:

1 pound powdered sugar
1 tablespoon meringue powder (powdered egg whites and cornstarch)
8-10 teaspoons of water
1 cup Crisco or 1/2 cup Crisco AND 1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon clear vanilla

This is a really easy recipe and it is gf and cf. It's the same recipe I teach all of my cake decorating students.

I use stevia flavored whey protein powder and red palm oil with a little xylitol and it was amazing I thought.
