I am super excited! My birthday is in ten days. That’s right readers, in ten days, I will be fifteen years old! Now that birthday time is coming around, I can’t help but think about birthday cakes, ice cream, cupcakes, etc. I can’t help it, I just love desserts, especially around holidays! However, as delicious as they are, they are likely the most dangerous foods a kid with a food allergy will come across.
Of all the foods I have come across, I find it the hardest to find safe desserts. Whether it be cake or ice cream, a lot of desserts contain or are processed with nuts. For example, I never have desserts at restaurants. This is because a lot of times they aren’t made inside the restaurant, but purchased from a factory that manufactured nut products.
It isn’t impossible though, to find safe desserts with allergies, even if you have to make them yourself. My mother has always made my birthday cake for me, and it is delicious, and peanut free. She even makes the frosting herself, because believe it or not, even cake frosting are commonly unsafe. So, for my readers, my birthday present to you is her yummy frosting recipe. I plan on posting other recipes to in later dates, but this is by far one of my favorite foods ever. I can eat it by the spoonful (and sometimes I do!)
For 24 cupcakes
Beat 2 cups butter until smooth
Add 2 teaspoons milk and 1 Tablespoon vanilla
Slowly add 8 cups powdered sugar and continue to beat until fluffy
That’s it! Yum!
Until next time!
