sweetener and fat is what s used.....in a double burner.
try a compliant mix, and you ll come out with what you want.


I would use ghee and agave nectar.........not too white but healthy!

can you tolerate all that sugar?
or are the cupcakes for the kids?

I' d omit the frosting if I had health issues to take care of.

Compliant sweetener (maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, etc) mixed with cocoa powder...it gets creamy!  

Ghee mixed with a light colored sweetener or perhaps powdered xylitol and a few drops of color - try this natural one  - http://www.amazon.com/India-Tree-Natural-Decorating-Ounces/dp/B000H7KALA

You can color your sugar with the India Tree coloring to sprinkle on top of another frosting.

For white, powdered xylitol and coconut oil would be better than standard frostings but coconut oil is only okay for Tpe O non-secretors.

Good suggestions here. I would also add that unless you have a specific reason for frosting the cupcakes, you could make do with a dusting of cocoa powder or a sprinkle of maple sugar, or perhaps make a streusel-type topping with some evap cane or brown sugar, chopped nuts and a little ghee--just run the cupcakes under the broiler for a few seconds to make a nice carmelized topping.

Thank you for all the suggestions. I was just wanting to make some of them for Valentines day. I made the cake out of a compliant recipe I found on this website, but wanted icing to be compliant as well.

I noticed no one mentioned raw sugar.....is this compliant for type A's? I was under the impression it was....

I mentioned making colored sugar.  Red could be made to sprinkle on top of the maple syrup/cocoa powder frosting.  I'm a non-secretor so sugar is an avoid for me.  Sugar is okay for A secretors.


Sucanat is an avoid, and here's more info:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucanat

Many natural/organic products have sucanat, I guess!

Goat cheese and xylitol, yaay! †Add a little ghee if necessary for spreading, dash of vanilla or almond if compatible for you. †Really good. †Especially on carrot cake.

I used chevre whipped with ghee and a little agave nectar (and some homemade vanilla extract) as a frosting for carrot cake and it was pretty decent. The mention of the goat cheese frosting from ER made me think of it.

Vicki don t believe sucanat is an avoid for all

Quoted Text
Dr. D
Question: Why no Sucanat for B's???

Answer: Raw cane sugar possesses a B-antigen
degrading enzyme
Much like certain preparations of soy. In
essence, the enzyme digests your blood type.
Not so good for the mucus of your GI tract. It
appears to be in the mineral (or ash) portion
of the food, which is much lower in the other
refined commercial forms. Prolonged boiling
(as in molasses making) inactivates it.

As an avoid it is only a Tier II value
(optional in otherwise healthy individuals),
so don't get too bent out of shape. B non
secretors may want to take this more seriously
though, especially if obese; and B secretors
if prone to gut permeability issues.

Some Type O's (me included) have severe problems with it, especially if it's made from corn.

For Aīs
What about draining yoghurt or sour cream? - so it gets the texture of cream cheese- add ghee, vanilla and any sweetner that you use honey sugar etc...
I have tried the drained sour cream as a substitute for cream cheese ( when the shops was out of it) and it worked fine. I DID use butter- so maybe ghee will work different since it has no water in it.

Lola,

Sucanat is in the typebase as an avoid for all:

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?407

According to foodsubs.com:  sucanat = unrefined natural sugar = granulated sugar cane juice = dehydrated sugar cane juice   Substitutes: granulated sugar (fewer nutrients) OR brown sugar OR turbinado sugar

So that means many organic chocolate bars and other treats would be an avoid.

Dear Kimonokat,  I am really sorry!  I don't eat it by the ton, but xylitol really helped me through some hard times, and was a great anti-candida addition to the arsenal.  The original was made from birch, and I understand there can be many sources.  Maybe I have just been lucky, as corn and I do not agree (and I can usually tell from my joints).  Just goes to show, we really are all different.  --E

Here in Denamark we can still get pure xylitol from birch- I feel fine with it  and so do my daughter O sec. I used it in rather large ammounts for a short time.

Chewing gum with xyltol has helped me several times when I was starting to get earinfection- got the idea from my eardoctor(?)dont know the proper word....

Back to subject....

Lola's post makes it look like an avoid for O's and A's.  I believe it is an avoid for non-secretors!

Perhaps whip up some soft sheep/goat cheese, silken or soft tofu, nut meal with added filtered water, then add some sweetener of coice.

Add a little kuzu thickener to make it to desired consistency.

WOW....I've started a "sweet" war............ Just kidding!

Everyone has so many ideas...it makes me realize I do not know all I need to know about this BTD. I sure hope I am doing things right. I have been using raw sugar now...I used atrificial sweetener which I know is bad.
I broke down and just put powdered sugar on the cupcakes...they were loved by all, and no on seemed to miss the frosting, or the added calories it would have brought.
I get the jest of the main foods...I get confused when things like this come along....again, thanks for your help

Keep all the information coming.

Don't worry about confusion, we all have it in new areas. †Just print out ideas, like ripping recipes out of magazines, for times you may want to experiment with something new. †There really is no right or wrong, just what you are ready to do at the moment. †(I don't mean there are no bad foods for particular bodies, but that the real joy of BTD is about the enormous opportunities we have to learn more about our bodies and try new things. †It is a journey, not a race.)

If you can eat sugar, here is one recipe. †I would use ghee instead of butter for your blood type. †I use water instead of soy milk because I don't like the soy taste. †It tastes just fine with water.

Icing:
6-Tablespoons white spelt flour
1-cup water
1-cup white sugar
1-cup butter
1-teaspoon vanilla extract

To Make Icing:

Stir flour and water in a saucepan until dissolved. Bring flour and water to a boil, then cookk flour and water over low
heat until thick stirring constantly. LET COOL
THOROUGHLY! After cooling, cream 1 cup
sugar, butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat this
well until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture to butter-sugar mixture
and beat until of a good spreading consistency.

There are also recipes using beaten egg whites (I've even seen some with egg yolks and sugar syrup) with a sugar syrup if you can have sugar.
Added:  Just be careful not to choose recipes that have cream of tarter or lemon juice or the recipe will change to invert sugar.
