MSPI Friendly Birthday Cakes

Venturing into the world of MSPI friendly baked goods is something I never thought would preoccupy me. However, have dealt with milk and soy protein intolerance for the better part of a year now, I’m getting more confident in the kitchen. Making a dairy free and soy free birthday care is not so difficult. So here are two birthday cake recipes that will make your party planning that much easier. Truly, they are simple and delicious.

Preparing MSPI Friendly Birthday Cakes

Baby Brother is about to turn one! Cue the tears. I just can’t believe my baby is not quite a tiny baby anymore. I was looking through our photos to pick out a few to print for his party/baby book and man, I got all nostalgic. I mean he wasn’t small for very long, but he’s still my baby, you know?

Anyway, it’s about time for some baking and luckily for my jeans I already practiced before Little Boy’s party last summer, so here are my dairy-free, soy-free (and bonus points) egg-free cakes!  

They turned out perfectly this summer, so most likely I’ll just be repeating. Although now that we have cut out white flour and vegetable oil from our diet I might have to rethink these.
