There is no gluten in Pillsbury Frosting (except coconut pecan). They are owned by Smuckers, a great company who will always list any form of gluten. And Duncan Hines Frostings are gluten free. Just read the label.

Tabz - when you want to find the gluten free status of a product, you can do a search on this site or use Google. You would be amazed on what you can find. :)

try googling wilton cakes. They have a buttercream frosting recipe that is gluten free and amazing. It's just butter, shortening, confectioners sugar, and vanilla.

side note if you are looking for a basic recipe you can generally find something on google. You will find that google is a great tool for recipes. Especially things like frosting which should be naturally gluten free.

~Basic Buttercream Frosting~ :

1 stick of butter, margarine, or the equivalent in shortening, such as palm or coconut based, gluten free

1 box of powdered sugar, or the equivalent amount of regular sugar spun in a blender or food processor until it is "powdered"

pinch (about a quarter teaspoon) salt

vanilla extract, gluten-free, teaspoon

liquid, such as water, milk, or nut milk

_____

Warm the stick of butter until room temperature by letting it set out a little while, but do not melt it. Add salt and vanilla to the sugar, mix. Put some of the powdered sugar into the butter in a bowl, and mash it up with a fork or pastry blender or potato masher, under it is mixed together, then keep adding the sugar to the butter and mashing/mixing, until it is all mixed together. It should be slightly crumbly. Now add very small amounts of water or milk, and stir, until the mixture resembles frosting. It does not take much, so don't add more than a tablespoon at a time.

Makes enough to frost a layer cake or a batch of cupcakes.

Chocolate frosting may be made out of this by adding cocoa powder to the dry sugar mixture before adding it to the butter, or by melting chocolate chips and adding that.

Peanut butter frosting may be made by adding some peanut butter and decreasing the amount of butter slightly, or even using all peanut butter for those avoiding dairy

Honey or maple can be made by adding honey or maple syrup, and decreasing water/milk.

I did notice that Pillsbury frosting has GLUTEN-FREE on the label, I didn't notice that on the label of the Duncan Hines frosting. Does it say gluten free on the Duncan Hines label?

Not too sure, but most likely it's gluten free, but you should read the label. Label reading is the key to a recovered life.

Most recipes for frostings are naturally gluten free such as buttercreams, royal icing and ganache.

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
