With more and more children being diagnosed with food allergies, cooking a birthday cake to suit everyone is not an easy thing. I do not like seeing kids miss out on nice things in life. So try this vegan birthday cupcake, in chocolate or vanilla. It is perfect for children with dairy, egg or nut allergies.
