  • That poor kid! Use tofu instead of eggs. You might ask DianesCakery. She owns a cake shop and deals with this stuff often. Also, consult with the cake decorating/recipe groups on here. Good luck!

  • cup cakes

    Milk-free; Egg-free; Wheat-free; Peanut-free; Soy-free; Nut-free

    Old Glory Cupcakes

    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup milk-free, soy-free margarine, softened
    3 T. applesauce, divided
    2 tsp. vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 3/4 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 cup water

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper liners. Set aside. In medium bowl, beat sugar and margarine with electric mixer until well combined. Beat in 2 T. applesauce and vanilla extract. Beat in flour and baking powder. Stir in remaining applesauce. Stir in water until batter is smooth. Spoon into prepared muffin tins, 2/3 full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting with Berry Topping.

  • Here's the rest: berry topping and the reference:

    Berry Topping

    1 (1-lb.) box confectioners sugar
    1/3 cup shortening
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. cream of tartar
    2 tsp. water
    1/4 cup blueberry jam
    6 strawberries, cut in 1/2 lengthwise

    In medium bowl with electric mixer, combine all ingredients except for strawberries. Beat until mixture is smooth, spreading consistency. Frost cooled cupcakes. Top each cupcake with 1/2 strawberry.

    Note: These cupcakes are very moist. Grape jam may be substituted for blueberry.

  • Last post: try a health food store or the gluten free CM group here for suggestions on wheat free flour for cupcakes. They will have appropriate suggestions. Have fun!

  • My son is allergic too. Go to They sell all kinds of mixes for pancakes, cakes, icings, name it. And they cater specifically to kids allergic to the Top 8 allergens. I swear by them. :)
