We had so much fun filming this quick and easy recipe for a delectable butter cream that has been completely revamped to accommodate those who may wish to avoid dairy, gluten, or animal products.

It turns out that you don’t have to sacrifice flavor in order to keep yourself happy and healthy.

Sloane simply used the recipe on the box of Domino Confectioner’s Sugar  but made some substitutions:



Dairy-Free Buttercream Frosting

Adapted from Domino’s Sugar

3 3/4 cups – (1 lb. box) Domino® Confectioners Sugar

1/2 cup – butter softened (Spectrum Organic Palm Shortening)

3 to 4 tablespoons – milk (Rice Milk)

1 teaspoon – vanilla extract (Tahitian Vanilla by Nielsen Massey)


Visit Sloane’s website (http://allergicgirl.com/) if you have any questions/would like to learn more about living with food allergies or if you just want to read another great food blog. She is wonderful.

I have so much fun making this show and I really hope that you have fun watching it.
