Gluten, Peanut, Dairy, Soy, Corn, Corn Syrup-Starch FREE!
Recently my daughter who is 4 was diagnosed with the following food allergie's I was just wandering if anyone knew of a website that has recipes for cooking & baking. I am finding it really hard to find a frosting for cookies I bake for her? :( It's is a learning curve for us but the goodness for whole foods!!!!
Also anyone know of a Vegan Baker for Birthday Cakes??
Thanks so much!

A great cookbook is The Allergy Self Help Cookbook by Marjorie Hurt Jones R.N.
My kids have food allergies and intolerances and I have used this book a lot! It's on Amazon. For my sons 1st birthday I did gluten free mini cupcakes with just a light lemon glaze on it and had mini fruit cups. Kids don't care, they just want to eat. :)
I use a lot of pumpkin and sweet potato puree's as well as coconut oil. My daughter can't eat eggs and this helps. I add shredded veggies to bread etc... To add moisture. Some of the gluten free recipes can be dry.
There is also a magazine out there called Eating Allergy Free or something like that. It has great seasonal recipes. I've found it at Target and Barnes and Nobel before. amazon might also have it.
message me if you have any questions!
I'm relocating soon to Frisco. We might be neighbors! :-)

A great bakery (and restaurant) is Spiral Diner. They make some beautiful vegan cakes, and the food is great. It's a bit of a drive from Frisco, though.

There are tons of great websites with recipes like gluten-free goddess and elana's pantry...just search gluten free dairy free and you should come up with tons. Most of these websites also cut out alot of the top 8 allergens too (like peanuts, soy and corn). For frosting I use either Trader Joe's powdered sugar which is cornstarch free (they use tapioca starch) or I grind my own using just cane sugar in my Vitamix. For fat, I use either a little coconut oil or soy-free Earth Balance (in the red container). There is trace amount of corn in the natural flavors however. Then I just use whatever milk (cashew, almond, rice, etc.) I have on hand to get the right consistency plus a little flavoring. You may have a hard time finding flavorings without corn. I soak a vanilla bean cut lengthwise in a bottle with either potato vodka or rum for a few weeks and use that for my vanilla. The Yahoo group Foodlab is also worthwhile joining to help you with the learning curve. Good luck!
