mmmmmm muffins for the party-goers parents

The Frozen birthday party for “Little O” was a hit thanks to the acting skills of her mum and godmother (who met at drama college). Happily we were able to cater for everyone there – including one dad with a nut allergy, the birthday girl with her egg allergy and my son with his soya and milk allergies.

These cupcakes are great; low in sugar and big on flavour. I made big muffins for the parents, cute cupcakes for the children and non-iced cupcakes for the bambinos. (The fat and sugar is all in the icing) They went down a treat – people couldn’t believe that they were dairy-free and egg-free and by the time we came home they had all been scoffed…
