Your friend has as many allergies as my mom and I'm still looking for yummy recipes for her too! Sorry I couldn't help!

My son has a soy and dairy allergy, so I've been down this road for birthdays and such. I have a cookbook called Sophie Safe Cooking that I ordered online that omits the 8 main allergens or explains how to substitute for them. It suggests rice and oat flour as well as some others. HTH

Try looking in a Whole Foods or other alternative/organic food store. They have cake mixes there that are gluten free (made with rice or almond flour). Also, anyone who is allergic to wheat would therefor be allergic to any wheat flour (AP and self-rising flour are both Wheat flours).

Basically, you need rice or almond flour in place of wheat flour and an egg substitute. 1/4 cup silken tofu = 1 egg is a common substitution.

Now, if he's also allergic to nuts and soy...he might just not be able to eat cake.

Why wouldn't he be able to eat cake if he's allergic to soy???

Have you looked at the Babycakes Bakery Cookbook? Their recipes are very good for people with allergies to many common cake ingredients.

Because he's allergic to eggs. AFAIK, all egg substitutes are soy based.

That is true. My little man is also sensitive to egg yolks, but can tolerate whites...which is according to our allergist, abnormal. Even the 100% egg whites in the box contain soy. However, I make eggs free cakes all the time for my guy and they are delicious. It can be done. His birthday cake was a pumpkin cake and a chocolate cake.

You can also get a shortening at Whole Foods or order it onlline that is not made with a soy base. The name brand is Spectrum, but Whole Foods just started making their own brand for about $3 less.
