Because so many of the cake recipes that call for frosting on this site call for cream cheese, I thought a nice fluffy white icing recipe was in order for those who are not only gluten free, but dairy free. This fluffy white frosting recipe is great because of the color. It is actually white (even with the use of regular vanilla), instead of off-white from so much butter/margarine. If you wish the same white color, but wish to use additional vanilla for flavor, it is suggested to use clear vanilla. There are a few brands that advertise they are gluten free. This fluffy white frosting makes a great wedding cake frosting, too! Enjoy!
