Help! My husband is lactose intolerant, and my daughter was just diagnosed with a soy allergy. I had been making icing with crisco, but that's all soybean oil. I use Olivio spread. Has anyone ever tried that in icing? Or have another idea? Margarine is soy as well.
how intolerant is your husband. There are different degrees of intolerance so he maybe able to handle alittle butter in the icing, as long as he isn't sitting down with a spoon and the bowl it might be okay.
How about a nice 7 minute frosting:

(Uses coconut oil and agave nectar.)
Coconut cream frosting recipes:
