I have a 2 yr old niece and we just found out that she has colitis she can't have any boxed cakes. I am tring to find a good recipe that she can have to celebrate her 3rd birthday. It just wouldn't be a birthday if she couldn't eat her own cake. Please if there is someone out there that can help me make this little girl a birthday cake i would sure appreciate it. She has to live the reast of her life with this disease and i just want her not to fell like she can't eat anything good. Please help ASAP! Thank You and god bless!!
What is it exactly that she can't have? Gluten,eggs,milk? I have a few recipes just need to know what exactly she can't eat.

Here is a coffee cake recipe from a cookbook specifically tailored to low-residue diets:
