Hello Cake Central Community: I was aked if I could make frosting WITHOUT butter or shortening? Is it possible?
The only thing I am aware of would be a glaze... sugar, water and flavorings. Good luck in your search. I will be watching this thread.
You could make a meringue frosting.
Royal icing has no fat, either.... Fat-free Cool Whip and a package of fat-free pudding mix... 8-ounces of fat-free Cool Whip and 1/4 - 1/2 cup of powdered sugar...
Hope some of this helps.
