Birthday Cakes (always a challenge with no butter and no eggs)

I’ve just downloaded masses of photos from my phone and come across a few birthday cake photos. If you have a child with a dairy/egg/nut allergy then a shop bought birthday cake is simply not an option. All their friends seem to have a pretty little Princess palace from Waitrose or a cake they’ve been admiring in the supermarket aisle. The cake seems like a big deal, so I’ve always tried my best to make an ‘oooh worthy’ cake!

Here’s a little gallery of a few dairy/egg/nut-free birthday cakes I’ve made – it might give you some ideas (and I’m pretty proud of them!!) 🙂

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.

  1. These cakes are gorgeous. Well done! My favourite is the fairy cake, mostly because I was obsessed with garden fairies as a child and would have loved this!
