A Birthday Cake Alternative That’s Still A Tasty Cake

With allergy and dietary requirements becoming a big focus nowadays, it can seem difficult to make a traditional birthday cake. But fret not it can be done and with the right recipe it can be delicious and simple to make. You won’t even miss some of the ingredients with the right substitutions in place.

When you are having a birthday party for your child, you probably have a good idea of which of their friends have allergy requirements. It’s just a fact of life that kids sometimes have serious allergies. So you want to consider all kids that are attending the party, just to be on the safe side. No one likes to miss out on cake, so having an egg, nut, and gluten free cake is the way to go. Or if you don’t need to go that far, just having a nut free cake is important. Here are some recipes to consider for your child’s birthday bash.

Gluten Free Funfetti Cake: What this cake lacks in gluten and dairy, it makes up for in taste and style. Gorgeous rainbow colours flank the cake all around the sides in the form of colourful sprinkles. The cake itself is moist and tasty with gluten free flour, and non-dairy butter. Sprinkles are even inside the vanilla based cake batter for a cake that your child and their guest will “ooh and ahh” over. Keep in mind this cake is not nut free since there is almond extract in the recipe. You can easily remove that ingredient though to make it nut free for the kids.

Vanilla Quinoa Cake With Chocolate Vegan Frosting: We know what you are thinking. This cake doesn’t sound that good. Quinoa in a cake? Being gluten free and without nuts as well makes this cake right for most people’s dietary issues. With combination of dairy free milk, sweet potatoes, and quinoa, you won’t even be able to tell this cake isn’t traditional. You’ll just want a second slice.

What’s a birthday cake without some ice cream? You can also find dairy and nut free ice creams fairly easily at some of the whole foods geared gourmet groceries stores. Cocofrio is an amazing Australian based ice cream brand that specializes in dairy and gluten free frozen ice cream. There many flavors will appeal to grownups and kids alike. Try the Chocolate Raspberry Ripple, Salted Caramel, or the Naked Coconut alongside a piece of cake for the ultimate birthday treat that is sensitive to allergy sufferers needs.
