Buttercream Icing

14 Dec

Cream 250g butter

Add 250g icing sugar

Add 1tsp vanilla essence if you want.

Done.  Add any colour last, if you need it.

For the dairy free Tummy I use a dairy free margarine.

For the additive free Tummy I just make sure at least part of the cake is white (or brown, coloured with cocoa, would work).  Examples….

This was actually before we took her off additives.


We let her eat the cachous this time, since they are more exciting than icing.


Others with additive free parts that I have done for various children are, a monkey (a couple of shades of brown using different amounts of cocoa), a rocket ship (the bulk of it was white), eggs (weird, I know, but it was green eggs (without the ham) – the white was, well, white), Miffy the rabbit, a drum, and a sheep.
