pMy 7 year old son's birthday is on Saturday. I used to have the FAN allergy birthday cake recipe printed out but can't seem to find it and can't get onto their site to print it up again./p
pOne of our guests is egg-allergic as well as nuts and I was going to make this so he could join in the fun. Being a Mum to a peanut/nut allergy kid, I know how he must feel being the only one who can't have the cake./p
pPlease, if you have the recipe or are able to get onto the site to copy it for me, could you either post it here or e-mail it to me directly??? I'd really appreciate it!/p

Thanks for your quick replies.....we made the FAAN cake and I have to tell you it was a BIG hit! Everyone was able to enjoy it and that made it a bonus for me. I baked it in a bundt pan and drizzled it with glaze, as I had trouble finding an icing recipe that didn't want either eggs or milk and the kids loved it. Since our allergies don't include milk, I didn't want to buy the soy milk that I knew wouldn't get used, but no one seemed to mind it with the water.
I've kept a copy of the wackie cake too and will try that another time.
