Birthday Season: Let’s Eat Cake!

(Birthday cake for celebration #1)

Arizona doesn’t officially turn 13 until tomorrow (June 18) but we’ve already had a few birthday celebrations for her. Because cake is obviously an important aspect of birthday FUN, I am so grateful for companies like Cherrybrook Kitchen who make my life so much easier during times like this! I can easily make their allergy free cake mixes in the comfort of my own home rather than having to drive big distances and pay big dollars for bakeries that service my child’s specific dietary needs.

Most Gluten Free cake / baking mixes call for egg and milk. Milk alternatives are easy to find, but egg replacers can sometimes be complex.

However, for the YELLOW CAKE MIX  by Cherrybrook Kitchen (note: I always get the package of 6 from Amazon) the only added ingredients are oil + water. Phenomenal!

For treats that are easier to pass out (for example, at summer camp tomorrow), I use Enjoy Life Foods brownie mix.

I encourage those of you who need to accommodate an allergy friendly diet to take advantage of companies like Cherrybrook Kitchen and Enjoy Life Foods.
