Buba has severe alleriges so when it comes to parties it is extremely nerve racking and hard to chase him around making sure he doesn’t touch or eat anything he isn’t supposed to. When it came time for his 1st birthday I still wanted him to be able to try some cake on his special day. What’s a birthday without a bit of cake?

Allergies Don’t Mean You Can’t Enjoy Food

One of the things that is really important to our family is knowing that just because you can’t eat certain things it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy food. Finding out your child has allergies is really scary! And as they get older and want to play at friends houses it becomes increasingly important to make sure food is still fun and that no one feels like they are missing out.

Nut Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

These Chocolate Chip Cupcakes came out delicious, usually when you substitute out key ingredients it taste dry or not as good but these are just as yummy as any other cupcakes, I promise. You will love it not just for the people with allergies but to make in general.

Sourcing High Quality Free-From Ingredients

As with all cooking and baking, it will only ever be as good as the ingredients you buy. Make sure you spend a little time checking the ingredients you buy and ensuring they are going to meet your allergy needs without leaving a synthetic taste. It can be the difference between a success or a baking disaster!

    • With my son’s severe allergies I am always trying to make normal recipe but cater for him. These I was so surprised how good they tasted. So sweet and yummy still. Thanks for popping over and commenting.

  1. Hun, these look amazing! It is the first time I have seem cupcakes that are free from and look so ‘normal’ (if you see what I mean!). All I have to do is substitute the plain flour for GF flour and I can make those for Jumpy! Pinning now to try very soon. Will let you know. Mel
