My son's 2 yr birthday is next month and I am starting to plan his birthday cake. I have not used any cake mixes/icings since he was diagnosed at 14 months. Are there any brands that are safe for PA (avoiding TN, also)? Are there any sprinkles that are safe?

Hi, my son is PA/TNA and allergic to sesame/poppy/sunflower. I have used Pilsbury Classic Yellow and Devils Food cake mix with no problems. Also their frostings, White, white w/sprinkles and chocolate frostings. Also used Betty Crocker Cake Mixes and frosting. Most people trust Betty Crocker. Always read the labels because sometimes things change. I use Betty Crocker sprinkles too with no problems.

We also like Cherrybrook Kitchen products. Well, DS and I like them--DH less so. But they are labeled peanut free (and TN free).

We use betty crocker cake mixes and frosting (DD is PA/TNA)- but still always check the labels. Sprinkles- Cake Mate (sometimes labeled Betty crocker too- Signature Brand out of Florida) are all supposed to be safe last time I checked EXCEPT they said not to use the Cinnamon decors or the Fruit decors (both look about the same). The rep told me they were in the process of getting the allergen labels updated on those- but weren't done yet. Here's their information from their website to check on their products to make sure nothing has changed:
What products are gluten free? Nut free?

Hi. We use Dr. Oetker (?) and my son has had no problems. We use the cake mixes and the frostings.

Thank you for all of your replies. Hopefully my birthday cake-baking will not be a disaster (I have never tried to decorate a cake before).

The CherryBrook Kitchens chocolate cake mix is delicious. It makes the best cupcakes I've ever tasted. There are chocolate chips in the mix. Their chocolate frosting mix is great too.
