My 2 year old PN/TN allergic son will be having a birthday soon. Anyone know of any safe store bought cake mixes for his cake? Thanks

We use Betty Crocker mixes and frostings all the time with no problems.

Ditto on Betty Crocker cake mixes & frosting.

I also use their Dark Chocolate Brownie mix to which I add in 1/2 cup of Hershey's choc. chips. I send the brownies into school for DD birthday and holidays. The kids love 'em.

We also use Betty Crocker all the time and my 2 year old with peanut, walnut, and egg allergies LOVES it. We've used the white cakes and rainbow chip cakes with absolutely no issues. Since she has egg allergies, I use the Ener-G egg substitute (more than called for) and it works wonderfully.

We really like the Cherrybrook Kitchen Chocolate Cake Mix. A little spendy but I feel good about supporting an allergy aware company. Available at SuperTarget or online.

dgood, how much egg replacer do you use? Does it work for cupcakes and a regular layered cake? I have just never been able to get a cake mix to do the right thing with any egg sub methods, and I am sure I tried egg replacer along the way. I just do not like the taste of the cake I make(vanilla, egg free, and I can taste the vinegar) compared to a BC mix. Thank you, becca

Thanks to all those responding to this question. This was my first post, new to the PA circles.

I use an extra "egg" or two. The cake is not the exact spongy consistency of an original cake and can be a little bit crumly, but I found adding extra egg replacer helps a bit with that. I would experiment because BC does have different mixes, some requiring butter, others oil. The taste is still great and it rises perfectly and looks normal.

Go to [url="http://www.yumyumsnacks.com"]www.yumyumsnacks.com[/url] and got the allergy pages and click on "Peanut-Free". There is a whiole list of products that are peanut-free and there's a chocolate cake mix there that is delicious along with a chocolate chip cookie mix and other products. The best part is that they are all natural. Betty Crocker has Hydrogenated oils in it amongst other bad ingredients.
