A gluten and dairy free birthday party
Typical party food usually includes sandwiches, sausages, sausage rolls, chocolate biscuits and of course, cake.
When my five year old dairy and wheat intolerant son goes to a party I have to send him with his own packed lunch. I am not criticising anybody. This is the sort of food that children love. But unfortunately party food is generally a complete no-no for an intolerant person.
This weekend my son had his own party. And this time, of course, nothing was off the menu for him.
My daughter and I made a huge plateful of these thinking that there would be plenty left for us to have later. No such luck, though. They were all gobbled up. And not forgetting the all important cakes…
Cupcakes with a ‘cream cheese’ frosting.
The birthday cake was a coconut sponge filled with jam and coconut cream. I was too busy to get a photo of it, but I can assure you it was tasty and I shall be making it again.
My son definitely had his fill of cakes and treats today and the weather held off, so all 14 of them got to play out in the garden and have a water fight as planned. It was a huge success all round.
