My son's bday party is tomorrow. I got the gluten-free cake under control, got gluten-free snacks. I forgot I need to decorate this cake lol

Does anyone have a good and quick icing recipe that is suitable for tinting and piping? Oh, and is food coloring gluten-free?

If you don't have time you could always use Betty Crocker frosting. If it is gluten free it will be on the label. I don't worry about food coloring. Have a great birthday party!!

My boys and their friends thought M&Ms on the plain icing (whaterever color) was the best looking cake they had seen! Cake and candy! Just sprinkle the M&Ms on while the icing is its softest.

I use a takeoff of the Wilton's Buttercream frosting. My recipe is something like this:

1 cup solid vegetable shortening (Crisco)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon butter extract (or sub in an additional teaspoon of vanilla extract)

6 cups confectioners' sugar

pinch of salt

enough milk to get to the consistency you want (can use water if you need to avoid milk)

I measure everything half-a$$ed . . . it's very forgiving . . . oops, added too much liquid? then add more powdered sugar.

In reality, I probably use twice as much extract as what I have listed. If you want the very white icing, then you need to use the clear extracts. If you want intense/deep colors, you should use paste type coloring.

Wilton makes the clear vanilla and clear butter extracts/flavorings. Their paste colors and extracts/flavorings are gluten free and can be purchased at places like Wal-Mart, Micheal's, and JoAnn's. All three locations have "Wilton" sections.

Thanks! I'm really proud of how it looks. I hope it tastes ok. This will be my first ever gluten-free baking. I did almost booboo though. Apparently walmart brand cooking spray has flour in it. Good thing I checked! I had heard cooking sprays are fine, but apparently just Pam original

Wow! Great Job. My now 17 year old son was Buzz's biggest fan for almost 5 years - wore his Buzz costume every day it wasn't in the wash for a good six months after his third Halloween.

Have a wonderful party - your son is very lucky boy.

Nicely done!!!

Don't be offended when they just eat the icing and leave a lot of cake . . . that has nothing to do with gluten/gluten-free cake and everything to do with kids love icing :lol:

That does look great! I agree about the icing too lol, I think this year was the first year that kids were eating the cake and not just the icing, they were all 7 to 10 years of age so a little older than kids in previous years.

Not only did they eat it...I got compliments!! The adults said it was awesome and the kids loved that the cake was purple and green. It was heavy but moist. Almost like a pound cake heavy. I'm assuming that is from using rice flour instead of wheat.

    • Poster boy,  I found this article.  I don't know if it's the source of the Patient Celiac's information, but it may have the information you're looking for. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956379/ There's some evidence that vitamin D deficiency contributes to high blood pressure.   https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/health-conditions/hypertension/ Vitamin D does so many things!  Getting my vitamin D up made me feel so much better!  I supplement every day to ensure I keep my level up about 80.  I don't do dairy and I don't get enough sun, so supplementing is the way to go for me.  And I have been able to get off my high blood pressure medications, but correcting a lot of different things (vitamin and mineral deficiencies) made that possible.  Make sure you check with your doctor before stopping any medications like high blood pressure medications. Hope this helps! Kitty 😸 
    • Did your folate (B9) levels get tested?  Folate deficiency can cause low white blood cells and anemia.  Folate is needed to work with B 12 to make both red and white blood cells.  Here's a couple of articles. http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Anaemia-vitamin-B12-and-folate-deficiency/Pages/Introduction.aspx https://patient.info/doctor/macrocytosis-and-macrocytic-anaemia http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vitamin-deficiency-anemia/home/ovc-20265306 Hope this helps.        
    • kareng, the thought occurred to me but she noted it might be two weeks before she might could answer back and I thought the forum might have an answer where the research was quicker. I will do that if someone doesn't already know where it is. I didn't put 2+2 together about olmesartan and losartan being the same class of medicine I guess . ... I actually changed to that form from a diuretic because I thought I might be loosing too many electrolytes like Magnesium. who knew I could be making my GI problems worse in the process. posterboy,  
    • Jherm21, I just posted a similar question in another forum topic that might answer some of your questions. I realized now this might be the better thread for the topic but since I was seeking the research on the BP medicine Losartan I posted it there instead. In short NSAIDs as well as some other medicines have been associated with GI issues. Here is a good overview of  the NSAIDs question form the DailyMail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2610158/Is-ibuprofen-making-sick-Research-suggests-cause-coeliac-disease.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,
    • I suggested a urinalysis to see if you had proteinuria, which is something that can happen with certain rheumatoid conditions. But you say you’ve had two ANAs - assuming those came back normal? I really like the suggestion of a food diary and going low carb, especially as raised glucose consumption can lead to a positive methane breath test. You may have a food allergy and/or are producing a lot of mucus in reaction to something, which can make breathing more difficult esp if you have a deviated septum. I have now jacked my b12 way up and feel better, and I’m also consuming more iron-rich foods. Both of which in general help me feel less run down. You mentioned having very low BP in the middle of the night - have you measured it? What was it, if so?
      I wish I could be of more help. Plumbago
