Six months later, here is some sort of reply! I have been using Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Frosting vanilla flavor for 2 years for my tree nut, dairy, and egg allergic son without any problems. He loves it too. Only today did i somehow decide to call Pillsbury. They told me that they do not make this on a dedicated line and that it may contain traces of nuts, or dairy or egg. NOW WHAT????????????
how do i make a frosting that is very similar to this one? that the children will like and spreads easily and is not "see through". Someone said just mix margarine (soy) and confectioner's sugar until you get enough and like the consistency. add food coloring.
does anyone have any other suggestions? i need to make a cake tomorrow for another child's 3 year old birthday party that our son is going to. they are letting me make the cake so it will be safe for our son. I am making a space shuttle!! ([url]http://www.family.com[/url]) wish me luck and please help with frosting ideas!

I use this recipe rom my Betty Crocker Cookbook:
3 c powdered sugar
1/3 c stick margarine or butter
(I use soy margarine)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 to 2 Tblsp milk (I use soy milk instead.
However, I always end up added more
soymilk than the recipe calls for to
get the right texture)
Directions:
1 - Mix powdered sugar and margarine i;n a medium bowl. Stir in vanilla and soymilk.
2 - Beat until smooth and spreadable. Frosts one 13x9 in layer cake or fills and frosts one 8 or 9 in 2-layer cake.
I make extra and separate into separate cups and tint the frosting appropriately.
I think the frosting is sickly sweet. But my guests enjoy it (especially the children!)

We use the Betty Crocker frosting with no problem. We love the whipped variety!
