gluten is mainly found in wheat (or barley or rye)...so unless you are using any of these flours in your frosting...i would think you'd be okay.

From what I've read on it, all frosting is gluten-free. Although some powdered sugars may contain some (fillers) so you will need to watch that. Also extracts contain gluten except for McCormick's. I'm not sure about the others. SMBC/IMBC are also gluten-free.

Any Dream Whip frostings or frostings that call for flour (I have a few) are not safe.

Cherrybrook Farms (I think that's what it's called) sells gluten-free icing mixes. I've never tried them, but I've seen chocolate and vanilla flavors.
