Hi 'goldyjlox',

Yes using icing/confectioners sugar and whipping cream is ok.

I usually buy Walmart brand powdered sugar, it says gluten free on the label. I also buy the whipping cream in the carton to whip myself.

Here is a quick and easy frosting. It tastes great.

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa

16 oz heavy whipping cream

Place dry ingredients in chilled bowl. Add whipping cream, blend with mixer until right consistency. This is a recipe kids are sure to love. The only downfall is that it needs to be refrigerated.

Here's another great frosting recipe

Duncan Heinz Frosting

1/2 cup margarine

2 3/4 cups icing sugar

1/4 cup regular sugar

1 medium egg

1 tsp vanilla or 2 Tbsp cocoa (for chocolate)

Beat all ingredients together. If the batch is larger than you need, the remainder can be stored in the refrigerator for a month.

This is my family's favourite frosting now. It works great on the celamix cakes.

Enjoy! :D

David, those buttercream frosting recipes were making me drool! That is my absolute favorite icing - I can even eat it without the cake :)

I either buy Pillsbury or make my own. Depends on what I'm making.

I buy Domino's Confectoners Sugar and use the Buttercream Frosting recipe on the box. I substitute Spectrum Shortening and 1/2 teaspoon McCormicks Butter Flavoring for the butter and either vanilla almond milk or water for the milk to make it dairy free.

I've used the Wilton Snow White Icing Recipe before and it was good.

I am in the process of baking my son's birthday cake for his party tomorrow. I bought Pillsbury icing this time (I called them and they did confirm glutenfree status for me). I'll let ya know!

I do like home made - I've made a whipped ganache before too. I'll post my recipe, gotta dig it out. :D
