Find a recipe for an eight year old birthday cake (homemade: from on 2004-05-01

I have an 8 year old niece has been recently diagnosed as having celiac. My own son's 8th birthday is next month and I would like to bake a cake for my niece so she may have a slice of cake in her party bag to take home, (and hopefully the family can enjoy too!). Can any one help

An egg free recipe for a cake You could try making shortbread type biscuits with different flavours - chocolate add cocoa, ginger, cinnamon.

Stick them together with an icing.

You can also add dried fruit such as sultanas or raisins into the mix.

This is a very rich sugar / butter mixture so a child should not be allowed to eat too much at one go
