Cinderella Cake with Low FODMAP Frosting, Fructose Free, Dairy Free

My daughter’s Cinderella cake. Made with a Low FODMAP frosting. Design inspired by Bubbly Nature Creations.

For anyone sensitive to fructose, white sugar, or dairy, eating special occasion desserts is a big no-no.

Today that changes. Because you can make your cake and eat it too!

I created this recipe after missing out on all my family’s special celebrations. Now I, too, can enjoy a decadent slice of cake without breaking out in dermatitis or suffering from muscle spasms & GI upset.

This frosting contains no fructose and can be tailored to fit a dairy free diet. 

Low FODMAP Frosting, Dairy Free, Fructose Free

Since dextrose powder’s consistency is much like confectionary (powered) sugar, it works great for frosting recipes.


1/2 c shortening (I use Spectrum’s Organic All-Vegetable Shortening {Non-hydrogenated})

1/2 c salted butter (If opting for completely dairy/lactose free, add another 1/2 c shortening)

1/4 tsp salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 c dextrose powder/fructose-free sugar (or 1/2 c more or less to taste)

4 tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk or unsweetened almond milk

1. Beat shortening and butter together in a mixer. 

2. Add vanilla extract and salt. Mix.

3. Add 1 cup of dextrose powder at a time to shortening mix, then 1 tablespoon of milk. Whip on high. Repeat pattern until you have your desired taste and texture. 

4. Use to frost {Low FODMAP} cakes, cupcakes, and desserts.

5. Now you really have something to celebrate!!! Enjoy!
