Nut-free fondant icing help

Hi, my DD's birthday is on Saturday and her best friend, who is allergic to nuts, is coming to stay. I've just discovered that the fondant I had bought for her birthday cake may contain nuts. Is there any icing I can buy which is nut-free?

If not, any suggestions for cake decorating welcome. I had already discounted chocolate cake with ganache as I couldn't find plain chocolate that would be suitable.

No advice about nuts/icing sorry, but what about decorating it with fruit, like a cream and strawberry cake.

Yes, of course, good old cream [slaps head]. I was beginning to panic that I'd have to do something decorative with a piping bag and some buttercream. Piping really isn't my thing confused. Thanks, CrazyD

I've found that Dr Oetker brand Choc doesn't have nut warning on their Choc and ready made fondant icing.
There's also kinnerton dark chocolate bars that are nut free
