“Can I just say. Thank You! Thank You!! This recipe was easy and delicious. I made the frosting as well. My son has numerous allergies and this was great for his first birthday!!!!”



1/4 cup dairy-free butter
1/4 cup solid coconut oil or shortening
1-3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla (affiliate)

This can be made with soy-free & dairy-free margarine, as well.

Mix butter and coconut oil/shortening with a mixer.

Add vanilla.

Slowly add powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time.

Beat on high speed until icing consistency is reached. If it’s too thick, add dairy-free milk 1/4 tsp. at a time.

This can be a little temperamental depending on the season and room temperatures.

If it’s summer, you will do best to use chilled butter and coconut oil.

If it’s winter, room temp works and dairy-free milk may need added.

Store frosted cupcakes in the refrigerator.

To I decided to use your recipe for my daycare class party because I have two children that have allergies to Dairy and eggs. When I mixed up the batter placed it in my cupcake pans they kind of became a volcano while baking. I threw them away made another batch that that's came out perfect. So I decided to make more I made another batch as well and that bats became of volcano as well. I followed the instructions step by step and that was my results twice. Is there anything that I should have done different?

Hi Sandra! I'm glad it worked, but not sure why the volcano. I'm stumped. :(

So my daughter can’t have egg, dairy , citric acid which includes vinegar, lime , lemon juice. Any alternative to that ?

I have noticed a lot of recipes call for Vanilla. If my daughter is allergic to dairy and egg. Is vanilla extract safe ??

Hi Lindsay, you are right. Vanilla is yummy! :) We have never had a problem with it, but of course it can be easily left out. I link to our favorite because it's been tried and true for our milk and nut allergies. :)

I'm going to try this !! My son is egg milk PN TN He can now have baked egg What do you think if I add the egg 1 egg for the vinegar ??

Hi Lisa, the egg is the baking soda and vinegar together. But you will truly love the cake without the egg. It's how the recipe was originally intended back in the 1930's. :) Hope you love it!

Hi, I'm planning to make cupcakes for my niece birthday. But she's allergic to milk, eggs, and nuts. Can I use the cake mix? Is there any specific brands? What frosting I can buy?

Sephora, some use Duncan Hines cake mix. Be sure to check with the family to make sure it's ok. And some Pillsbury frostings work, too. They have soy.
