Does anyone have a frosting recipe that does not have milk, corn syrup or nuts? I have a child with major food allergies.

  • You can get a non-dairy butter substitute and use juice in place of milk in a traditional buttercream. The vegan bakery uses a soy based butter. Just whip it up with powdered sugar, adding juice (like orange) for liquid and you can add cocoa powder to make it chocolate.
    You can also use butter flavored crisco in the same manner.
    Alternately you can make a 7 minute frosting:
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup boiling water
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    3 unbeaten egg whites
    food coloring (optional)

    1. Mix sugar, cream of tartar, vanilla and egg whites.
    2. Add boiling water.
    3. Beat on high til mixture forms peaks (like meringue) approx 5-7 minutes.

  • Put most of a box of powdered sugar in a bowl. Add a tsp of vanilla and a few tablespoons of chocolate powder. If you don't want to use butter, can you use margarine? shortening? Use about a tablespoon. Then gradually beat in enough boiling water, start with a few tablespoons, to the right consistency.
