Hot gossip in pre-schools and mums groups all over Britain is ‘who has THE best birthday cake?’ Which cake has the most icing, the brightest colours and the most complicated design… which cake is the biggest and most spectacular?
It’s all part of growing up… and then when you become an adult you realise that you didn’t grow up after all. You still want your child’s cake to be THE biggest and THE best.
But… imagine that allergies prevented your little lovely from partaking in sweet birthday awesomeness. Other than being the hot gossip of the town, a birthday cake is also for the enjoyment of the birthday boy and girl – yes, really.
Tim Slatter, inspired by his then 13-month-old daughter’s Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis, has decided that his family business The Brilliant Bakers will have gluten free birthday cakes on their entire range of exciting new party cakes.
This is huge news for children (and parents of children) who are on a ‘wheat/gluten free’ diet!
Tim talks about how on Daisy’s second birthday she was the first Slatter child in generations to be denied a spectacular birthday cake for fear her blood sugar levels would rage out of control.
