Freefrom Egg-free Christmas or Festive Cake Icings
Corn, egg, gluten, lactose, milk, nightshade, peanut, sesame, soya & wheat free
Our good friend Dick Mieli spent some of his chefing career working for a baker in New Orleans producing wonderfully 'fancy' cake icings. As a base they always used vegetable shortening (sold as Trex, Crisco or Spry) as it was very workable, temperature stable and more or less tasteless. Some also include hydrogenated fats (Trex does not) which we would not normally use in our recipes but given that this is only for a very occasional treat and one is not eating that much of it, we will let that pass...
