I wanted to make sure that he was able to eat anything that we served, so I decided to make "crazy cake"

flour - 3 cups
sugar - 2 cups
baking soda - 2 tsp
unsweetened cocoa - 1/2 cup
vegetable oil - 3/4 cup
white vinegar - 2 tbsp
vanilla - 2 tsp
cold water - 2 cups
mix together all of the dry ingredients in your pan; make 2 small wells and a large well.
Place vanilla in one small well, vinegar in the other and oil in the large well. Cover with the water and mix together until smooth.
Bake for 30 minutes (ovens will vary - don't overbake)
Shortening - 1 cup
icing sugar - 4 cups

Using a mixer combine the above ingredients - add food colouring if desired
