If you can get your hands on it--Cherry Brook Kitchen has some good frostings: https://www.cherrybrookkitchen.com/items.asp

Here are 2 recipes--verify Bakers if gluten-free...I did a while ago, but can't remember for sure. It is a Kraft product and will list gluten on the label.

Easy Chocolate Frosting

Prep Time: 15 min

Total Time: 15 min

Makes: About 2-1/2 cups or 20 servings, 2 Tbsp. each

4 squares BAKER'S Unsweetened Baking Chocolate

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened

1 pkg. (16 oz.) powdered sugar (about 4 cups), divided

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup milk

MELT chocolate in saucepan on very low heat, stirring constantly; set aside.

BEAT butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add about half of the sugar, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended. Add chocolate and vanilla; mix well.

ADD remaining sugar alternately with the milk, beating until well blended after each addition. Use to frost your favorite cake or cupcake recipe.

Chocolate Butter Frosting

1/2 cup soft butter

1 pound sifted confectioners' sugar (about 4 1/4 cups sifted, 3 3/4 cups unsifted)

dash salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 squares melted unsweetened chocolate

3 tablespoons heavy cream or half-and-half (more or less)

Cream soft butter; gradually add sifted confectioners' sugar. Add dash of salt, vanilla extract, melted chocolate, and about 3 tablespoons of cream. Beat until smooth and spreading consistency, adding more cream if necessary.

Get out your frosting eating spoon!!

There may be more, but for these I know that they are gluten and dairy free.

Pillsbury "Creamy Supreme" Frosting

Vanilla - UPC: 51500 76080

Chocolate - UPC: 51500-76050

Pillsbury tells me that they are gluten and dairy free. I cannot recall if they are on dedicated lines or not, but for such a common flavor sold all over the USA I can't imagine they wouldn't have dedicated lines...but check it out for yourself!! 1-800-767-4466

My sons and I have not yet had a reaction to these and we've been eating them for about 6 months now! (I hope I didn't just jinx myself!)
