There is nothing worse than trying to make frosting only to find you forgot to buy more powdered sugar. This is the predicament I found myself in a few weeks ago. I had found a great Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcake recipe, had made them ahead of time so they were cool enough to frost. I went to make the frosting only to realize, what I thought was a bag of powdered sugar, was a bag of sweet rice flour. I was devastated. I did not have the time to go shopping, what was I going to do? We could have just had cupcakes without frosting, but that seemed wrong. So, I did what I feel I do best. I used Google.
Turns out, there are plenty of frosting recipes out there that do not use powdered sugar. I had no idea! A whole new world of frosting just opened before my eyes. I found one at ourbestbites.com. This is an interesting recipe, it uses a white sauce combined with a creamed butter and sugar mixture. It looked interesting and I had all the ingredients. I followed her advice and doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough for all my cupcakes. I was unsure just how long to cook the white sauce, so I think I did not cook it long enough, my frosting was really soft. But held its own and everyone loved them!
