This frosting has a somewhat maple flavor to it. You can use it right after making it, or if you want to use a cake decorating tip (like in the top photo), put the frosting in the refrigerator for 30 minutes first.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup macadamia nuts, soaked in ½ cup water for 15 to 30 minutes

Macadamia is actually a seed. Are you specifically allergic to them or true nuts like chestnuts acorns or haslenuts?

How about a dairy free whipped topping from the grocery store? I like the So Delicious brand whipped topping.
