Every cake seems to have a story behind them. This one is no different. I got a call from the father asking if I could make a dairy, egg free cake. His little boy is turning 4 and never has had a birthday cake because of his allergies. Well this year he will. This cake is called a depression cake. It is the recipe used during the depression when eggs and milk was scarce. The father is so excited that he called and said he went to the local party store and got all kinds of batman birthday decorations. As you can tell the little boy loves batman. So the theme of the cake is all about batman. I can't wait to deliver this cake.
