Butter Cream Icing?

Recommended Posts

My DD is turning 8 next week and this is her 1st gluten-free bday so I wanted to make her a gluten-free cake. We love butter cream frosting does any one have a good gluten-free recipe?

We did find a bakery in the city that sells gluten-free cup cakes so hubby might go get them for her the friday before her party but it might be a project. I am happy to here that there is a gluten-free bakery in my area though!


DD almost 8 Dx Celiac and Chronic gastritis 9/2007 gluten-free since 9/2007 seasonal allergies and mold allergies.

DS 5 seasonal allergies and dustmite allergies.

DH Ulcerative Colitis, had colon removed 10/2000, has Jpouch and doing great!

Me Hyperthyroidismdx 2004 was on meds for a yr went into remission 2005 with the stress of my DD Celiac DX my thyriod acted up so I am back on meds.

Hi,

I have a very good butter cream icing recipe

here it is

1/2 cup crisco

1/2 butter

1 tsp. vanilla

4 cups powder sugar

2 TBSP milk

cream crisco and butter with a mixer add vanill, slowly add 1 cup of powder sugar at a time and add milk.

This icing reminds me of wedding cake icing

I hope you like it

Sue. Thanks! Have you tried food coloring in it? I was wondering if I could maybe make it pink for my DD?

David your cakes looks so yummy! I am tempted to try one but gluten-free cooking is still new to me so for now I will try the box mixes and will certianly move on to one of yours B)

I don't have a specific recipe, just a few tips.

I found what makes the best buttercream frosting is the quality of butter you use, European butter with a higher butterfat. It really makes a difference in the end result.

I usually make chocolate buttercream frosting on Pamelas Chocolate Cake Mix, but it sounds like you are wanting to do a white cake with white icing so you could make it pink?

Pink sprinkles are also an option (I think Cake Mate sprinkles are gluten-free, but maybe someone else can varify that?)

Hi Nikki's Mom,

I haven't tried food coloring in it, but I'm sure it would work. If you use red food coloring it will make them pink. Give it a try. Its very easy icing to make. Have you ever heard of Wilton cakes ? This is the same butter cream recipe. I have used this butter cream icing on chocolate and white cupcakes for my family.

If you do try it let me know how it turned out.

Thanks,

Sue
