Any advice? Maybe somebody know an egg-free cake recipe? I think just dairy would be OK as well, but I don't want him to have eggs yet.

I love my girlsMadaline(9), Mary-Grace(7), Georgia(3), & Evelyn(1)
DD's turning 1 in a few weeks--I intend to have a carrot-cake made, w/ no raisins or nuts. We don't have any food-sensitivity issues so far, so I'm just steering her away from peanut butter for as long as possible. I'd go w/ Cathe's recipe, but I don't have time to bake it, and our natural foods co-op doesn't have a bakery, so I'll be going to one of the traditional bakeries around.
Happy Birthday to Mary-Grace! And I love her name!
Ava who turned one a few months ago, stuck in her finger and said "mmMMmm" repeated a couple of times, took one bite when offered an that was it. Much to SIL disappointment who stripped the baby and her kitchen in anticipation of the big mess :LOL. Madeline choked on hers and wanted nothing to do with it and I don't rmember Lilyka eating hers. She fell asleep and we were celebrating two birthdays together and no one wanted to wait for her and I didn't want to cut her cake until she was awake so everyone one had the other cake instead madelines was basic white, Lilykas was home made - not from a box- yelow cake with lemon filling and lemon frosting, and Avas was this luscious banana cake with cream cheese frosting)
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
Needless to say, she'll be in a high chair w/ a big old mat under her when we do her birthday cake.--and I'll have the dustbuster ready!
DD3 still has awhile before we worry about it, but she'll get her own cake as well. Of course we don't have any allergies in the family, if we did, that would be another story and I'd be more likely to search out an egg free (or whatever allergies run in the family) free cake recipe. I hope you find something that works for you.
There is no way I am going to make TWO cakes! (of course, we aren't dealing with allergies - my sympathy to those who are)
Ds #1 had absolutely no interest in the cake. Ds #2 was begging for more.
But everyone is different and if you don't want to give them cake, maybe make something different for everyone? The only thing I really don't like, as a concept, is giving everyone else a treat and denying it to the kids. You can put a birthday candle in anything!
well i found this woman who made a repilca of OLIE, as in rolie polie oile... that was his fav at the time.. she did a awsome job and it was a huge cake! oh i was so excited i think i took 15 pics of just the cake alone!
then she also made him his "own" cake it was in the shape of a 1
it was little and just for him..
i had reserves about this as well. it was all white so i didnt worry about the dies..:
i put him in his high chair and let him go to town! oh he had a ball.. cake everywere! after about 5 mins i took it away.. everone yelled at me aww come on blah blah!!!
Ds on the other hand is probably going to be very much into "eating" his cake as EVERYTHING goes in the mouth. I think I will either do a banana cake again, or I like the idea of carrot cake as well....
Happy birthday, Amy
