“Can you ask your mums what sort of icing I could put on my baby’s first birthday cupcake? Sugar free, dairy free and egg free. I’m making her a sugar and dairy free cake, but have no idea what to ice it with. Some sugar free recipes I’ve found have raw egg white in them, and I’m not keen on that..” Have you got any icing recommendations?

  • Maybe try dairy free whipping cream with vanilla.. good luck!

  • Im sorry I’m no help! But maybe this site is worth a look??


    Hopefully it helps, goodluck!

  • Cool! It was interesting reading the comments to this!

  • What about rather than icing using some colourful sweet fruit such as grated carrot or sliced banana, this could still look bright and taste nice

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
    1 1/4 cup Confectioners Swerve or powdered erythritol
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2- 1 teaspoon vanilla liquid stevia
    1 tablespoon milk as needed

    I used this from a site http://www.sugarfreemom.com/recipes/sugar-free-vanilla-buttercream-frosting/

  • Wow! I have no suggestions but that’s really hard!

  • I’m sorry I don’t have any suggestions but I hope you find one:)

  • Can’t think of any sugar free icing methods!

  • I hope you found a nice suitable icing for your cake

  • Some useful ideas here, just wondering how you went.

  • Hope you managed to find the answer you were looking for.

  • Lots of good ideas here

  • Happy Birthday to your baby

  • How did it go with the cup cake?

  • Would love to hear what you ended up using, I have never made one that was sugar free before. I guess you could have made one with a sweetener like stevia to replace the sugar.
