I know that awhile back there was some discussion on leaving the eggs from a mix. Has anyone out there made a boxed cake and simply left the egg out?



Yes I used applesauce and oil.

By the way. The cake was very crumbly and didn't hold together too well but no problem. When I flipped the cake onto the other cake with icing on it; it crumbled into a few big pieces so I pushed them back together and put it in the freezer. After 30 minutes I took it out and iced with no crumbs or problems. By the way it tastes just the same; only maybe a slightly sweeter taste to it; maybe like pancakes. And even the consistency is like biting into a pancake. But for them always eating egg free; they thought it was the best tasting cake ever. It was the castle cake on my website. they do come out very thin; it has no eggs so there isn't a way around that as far as i know.

I found a great solution and one the customer is happy with! icon_smile.gif I'm going to make the tiered cake using boxed mix with eggs and then make a second 6" cake from scratch without egg using the recipe I had from before. I'll then decorate the cakes to match.
Thanks to everyone for the good discussion. I especially appreciate the idea to make one tier egg free... this is what got me thinking. icon_wink.gif

Oh, just realized that Beachcakes suggested this link earlier, but I didn't check it out until now. Thank you Beachcakes! thumbs_up.gif

I just wanted to add, being vegetarian and knowing a lot of vegans, you might want to find out if they are requesting you to omit the egg because they don't eat meat products. And if so, you shouldn't use gelatin, being it's considered a meat product.

I don't know if anyone brought that up or not. Sorry if it's repeated. icon_smile.gif

That raises a good question: does the Dr. eat meat? Never thought of that at all..

Good point. They have a little girl with an egg allergy. So, it's not so much a vegan issue, just using a vegan recipe. icon_wink.gif
