You can do canned frosting.  Its gluten-free.  I think at least one major brand actually labels it gluten-free.  I know there are some box mixes you could use.

Just looked and Betty Crocker says gluten-free on it

Do you need to be dairy free?  I think most canned frosting has dairy.

this is good for dairy free- 

4 cups powdered sugar

1 cup shortening (I use spectrum palm oil but Crisco should work)

1 teaspoon vanilla

5-7 teaspoons water

Mix well in a mixer.  You can add color or flavors like mint or lemon without changing the color.  If you use real vanilla and the palm shortening - it won't be a bright white...more of a cream color.

Umm I have Multiple options, I have a recipe on my blog for making a grain free version from scratch (click my profile then check my recipe blog) I will also give links to various ones and the only icing I use in my bakery. PS for a Sugar Free hard set icing I like to melt coconut butter, swerve sweetener, vanilla, and a bit of almond milk mix it up and use it. Check Amazon for pricing and where to order these.

This will be fun. My son will enjoy doing the different colors and it looks easy.

gluten-free dough can be hard to roll.  So...if you find you have difficulty, just roll the dough into balls and flatten.  You can frost and decorate.  Use parchment paper or a silicone make.  gluten-free dough tends to stick!
