This uses regular sugar, and it has to be cooked. My mom used to make cooked frosting.


* 2 tablespoons flour
* 3/4 cup milk
* 3/4 cup butter
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a saucepan add a small amount of the milk to flour then stir to make a smooth paste. Add remaining milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. Cool.

Cream butter using medium speed of electric mixer.
Gradually add sugar and salt; beat well. Add cooled milk mixture. Beat until light and fluffy; add vanilla. Frosts a two layer cake.

Chocolate ganache. You can pour it while it's still warm or you can let it cool or chill it and then whip it and it will be fluffier and you can even pipe a little with it. Other than that I don't know of anything else. Maybe someone else knows something???

Silky Vanilla Butter Frosting
This is not your usual butter-cream made with powdered sugar. Butter is beaten into a flour-thickened base to make an exquisitely light and creamy frosting. Not gaggy sweet like those made with powdered sugar, but sweet enough to be the perfect compliment for a cake. Make sure the base is completely cooled before beating in the butter. I added in 15 minutes cooling time, but it will vary depending on conditons.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups milk
1 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 1/4 cups

1. In 2-quart saucepan, thoroughly combine sugar and flour.
2. With wire whisk, gradually stir in milk until smooth.
3. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture has thickened and boils.
4. Reduce heat to low; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
5. Remove from heat and cool completely.
6. In medium bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter until light and fluffy.
7. Gradually beat in milk mixture; beat in vanilla

Couldn't you use the meringue buttercreams?

egg whites
granulated sugar

(some powdered sugars do not contain the cornstarch additive)

I have a chocolate "fudge type" recipe that's made without powdered sugar. However, it does have an egg....do eggs bother your son?

all4cake, thank you, for the youtube site. I really liked that and will for sure try it! jjkarm, No, eggs do not bother him just anything that contains corn. I would also like to try your recipe if you're willing to share. scoutmama and crystalina, I am also going to try the ones that you have suggested also. I'll see which one he likes the best. I should be able to do all of those before March, right?

Thanks to all of you!!

You could use a food processor to make your own powdered sugar from granulated. I've had to do that in a pinch before, I've never had to do a large quantity though; but it's an idea!

Here you go Kim....

One Minute Chocolate Frosting

1C granulated sugar
3T cream or milk
2 squares baking chocolate
1 egg
1/8t salt
2T butter
1t vanilla
Combine all ingredients except butter and vanilla in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until melted, and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat then add butter and vanilla. Beat with hand mixer until it reaches desired frosting consistency.

I usually double this recipe for a 9x13" or 8" round cake.
