Egg Free Royal Icing

This egg free icing is perfect for decorating my Easter biscuits.  At this consistency it can be used for cookie flooding which can be tricky with water icing yet is very allergy friendly.  If you add more icing sugar it will be stiff enough to pipe into shapes.

Easter Biscuits Free From Allergens

Does anyone else find food allergies at Easter time a challenge?  All that chocolate everywhere you go, let’s face it all those lovely egg hunts laid on by Cadbury aren’t geared up for allergy parents!  One Easter tradition I have to keep up is baking Easter biscuits free from allergens. 

Sheik el Mehohie

Until Felix’s allergies changed how we ate I would often make a lasagne when I needed to feed a crowd.  It’s not too exotic so suits fussy eaters, not to mention being fairly cheap to make.  I used to make a massive lasagne a couple of days before so I could have lunch on the…

Dairy Free Buttercream

There are some aspects of being a parent I have dreamed about for a very long time.  I  loved baking so much but really had the wind knocked out of my sails once Felix was diagnosed with multiple allergies.
