Cupcakes for Everyone!
One of the hardest parts of being a kid with a wheat allergy is never getting to eat the cupcakes brought for classmates’ birthdays in elementary school. Even worse, perhaps, is when your birthday falls during the school year and you can’t eat a cupcake, so you don’t even bother to bring them. Now you can. Make up a batch of these for everyone! Your child will enjoy celebrating with all the other kids and everyone will love this wheat-free rendition of the old standby.
