Thanks! I liked this site. It gave me some ideas to do for DS birthday cake. The site does have lots of info.

Just wanted to let you know how my first eggless kid-birthday-type of cake went. It was a success! I used the wacky cake recipe. It had been posted on this board before. Since I was going to decorate it and use a thicker, cake decorator (which I am not!) type of cake pan, I had to obviously make more. DS also wanted it to be swirled! So, I made a double recipe of the chocolate and a double recipe of the vanilla version. Swirled the batter in the pan, and it was just the right amount. I used a buttercream icing recipe, which was basically butter, powdered sugar and vanilla, and colored a little to pipe the iced cake. Slapped on his desired edible lay-on picture, piped, added wording...done! Everyone loved the taste! Whew!
It's worth the extra effort to make things that keep some normalcy for everyone (except me!) - keeps FA-DS happy as well as non-FA siblings!
BTW, yesterday was the first time I took a cupcake for FA-DS to have at a wedding so he could eat a treat while everone else had wedding cake. I whipped up a batch of the chocolate wacky cake into cupcakes, iced one and added sprinkles. He was very pleased. I was sure wishing I had one of those cup-a-cake things!
Aaahhh, adapting to this slowly but surely!

That's so great! I need to make my daughter's cake next week for her party. I'm going to "attempt" to make a princess cake with the edible image and will also attempt to decorate it.
I've been trying all kinds of recipes and also love the Wacky Cake. My daughter, however, does not like chocolate cake and most chocolate in general. So, I have a good white cake recipe I plan to use.
Just as a side note, if you add 1/3 cup of milk chocolate chips to the Wacky cake batter, the cake is supreme. It gives the cake a much richer flavor and everyone loved it. They melt into the cake. My son usually only eats the icing and he actually polished off the cake too!!!

Thanks for the idea of the chocolate chips in the cake! That sounds delicious! I just wish I didn't have to order chocolate chips (avoiding lecithin), but it may be worth it to try this!
