I need any icing that doesn't contain any milk products!! - Page 3

post #31 of 38
As Sadsmile said, products labeled non-dairy are not TRULY non-dairy. This includes non-dairy coffee creamer. This has an ingredient called casein, which is a milk protein. I am not technically 'allergic' but I have asthma and non-dairy coffee creamers affect me the same as milk does.

Familiarize yourself with all the milk related allergens and then check every label!

Casein or caseinate
Lactalbumen
Lactoglobulin
Lactose
Coffee-Mate, Prem, and Cool Whip contain casein or caseinate
Whey

Ther could be more. I got this from http://www.adrenalfatigue.org/sources-of-common-allergens/milk-allergens.html

I use Sugarshack's recipe & use non-dairy creamer for my liquid. It does contain sodium caseinate which is a milk derivative, but not a source of lactose. Just ask if they are allergic to the products you're using

You could try making SMBC and switching out the butter for HR shortening.

I make SMBC and up the granulated sugar by 1/2 c., sub some of the butter out for HR-short. and it holds up well in humidity. I have not tried making ALL with HR-short. but if you up the sugar a bit, then I believe it would still taste better than the non-dairy whip, which has chemical taste, IMHO. icon_smile.gif

my recipe for icing is as follows:

1 pound of shortening
1 1/2 cups of cake and pastry flour
(blend these together) then add
almost 2 bags of icing sugar (or more if needed)
1 1/3 cups of water
2 tsps of clear vanilla, 2 tsps of butter flavouring
sometimes i add a couple of drops of lemon and orange oil flavouring

mix for couple of minutes

this does not need refrigeration.

this makes the largest tupperware "thats-a-bowl" almost full of icing
and cake make several cakes

for the above recipe i forgot that you add about a teaspoon of salt - this cuts down on the sweetness

I have been making a little boys birthday cakes for years that are dairy and egg free and contain no nuts as he is allergic to all these ingredients. I make mmf from the recipe on here and the dairy free chocolate cake also from here. With the mmf just check the ingredients in the marshmallows but I have never had a problem

if you are making chocolate buttercream frosting I use black coffee instead of water. Gives the frosting a nice rich flavor and the same consistency of milk. Hope this helps
