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.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
