I made this for a friend who is allergic to eggs, but I made a chocolate buttercream icing instead. You could easily do this recipe with a dairy free marg instead of butter.

The cake went down really well with everyone too, you really couldn't tell, it got lots of components!

I made two of these cakes (so double the stated recipe) and filled and covered with the buttercream. smile

That is very kind of you and thank you on behalf of all stents of allergic children - it really is appreciated. A good start are vegan recipe sites or pig in the kitchen or the intolerant gourmet. I would not bother with cheese 'alternatives' they are generally foul - sausages, fish fingers or chicken instead?! smile

Could you make your own cheese free pizzas? Garlic bread, hummus, veg crudités, crisps, if you can make vegan pastry, sausage rolls.

Where I live there are lots of businesses that make egg free, dairy free cakes, I think they use oil instead of dairy fat, and in holland and Barrett you can buy egg replacement powder. That way you could adapt any recipe??

Good luck, hope your dd has a lovely party tea!

We are dairy, soya and nut free here. Suggest finding a non-egg containing recipe and substituting 'pure sunflower spread' (or similar) for butter. I have found that is generally a good strategy.

Or ... these are vegan brownies...

250g plain flour
350g demerara sugar
65g plain cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
250ml water
250ml vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all dry ingredients together, add all wet ingredients and stir. Spread into greased 20cmx 30cm (ish) tin. Bake 25-30mins at 180C. Should be squigey and yummy.

Ready to roll puff pastry is usually egg and (i'm pretty sure) dairy free, maybe some jam tarts or similar?
It really is lovely of you, birthday parties are one of the thing I worry about as DS gets older. I hope he finds some friends with parents like you grin

Hope your dd has a great party!

I've found the list I made for my dd's 1st birthday (she was allergic to egg and dairy and I wanted all the party food to be safe for her).

Pom bear crisps are sometimes ok - check the packet - they've sometimes changed the recipe and added milk but the lasts one I bought were ok for both. Cocktail sausages are often ok. Ham / houmus / jam sandwiches with dairy free marg... Jelly (yum!) party sausage rolls are often ok as long as you don't glaze with egg (bit pale looking but ok), chopped veggies, jammy dodgers, iced ring biscuits, strawberries covered in melted dark chocolate.

I've made little vanilla fairy cakes using egg replacer and dairy free marg which have gone down well, then iced them with 'butter' icing made using dairy free marg, icing sugar (check egg free) and food colouring to make them more fun, and topped with 100's and 1000's

You really are lovely and as others have said, it's most appreciated to know that there are kind and thoughtful mummies out there thanks

Some of the Betty Crocker frostings are egg and dairy free too if it helps
