Piper is getting to the age where she gets upset when she can't have what everyone else is having, yet she's still too young to reason with. So when the boys get something she can't eat due to her allergy, she usually ends up in a screaming crying fit. And I contemplate joining in.
Since pretty much every food associated with parties contains egg, I have started contributing egg-free "goodies" (and I use the term VEEERRRYY loosely) at her school parties. I also baked an egg-free cake for her birthday.
And I don't care what people say or how many rave reviews a cook book gets, I have not baked a sweet without eggs that's nearly as good as the original. Not even close. Maybe that's why they call it the "incredible edible egg." Because people who can't have them get to eat baked goods that are very much NOT incredible.
The chocolate cake I baked for her birthday was just weird. Even a very sweet friend of mine finally admitted the other night that it wasn't good. At all.
Tonight I made "Luscious Yellow Cake" but used a cupcake pan instead. Let's just say that the "Luscious Yellow Cake" is more like "Yellow Brick Road Cake." The things are so hard you could use them to pave the road to Oz. I'm taking them to her party anyway because it's late now and I don't have time to attempt another failing recipe. I'm honestly not sure if 2 yr. old's have strong enough teeth for these "desserts." I think I need to make a sign for my cake plate that says "I will not be held responsible for any dental injuries that should occur from eating the Yellow Brick Road pavement. Eat at your own risk, for sure."
And I'm only half-way joking.
