Sugar Free (Birthday) Cake

It’s Little Lady’s 3rd birthday very soon (where did the time go??) so I am thinking about what kind of cake to make her. She wants a “pink, purple, unicorn, Peppa Pig, Sofia The First, chocolate and Smarties one” which I have no idea how to make but I will do my best! As you all know I believe anything is fine in moderation so for both of my kids’ first birthdays (and subsequent ones) they have had sugar and chocolate loaded birthday cakes. They really only ate a tiny bit so I wasn’t concerned and for their special day they were allowed as much sugar and chocolate as they wanted. However a lot of people tell me they want their baby’s first birthday cake to be as healthy as possible so here is a really delicious sugar free cake recipe that’s perfect for a first (or second, third, fourth, fifth and so on) birthday.  Continue reading

Where possible I do try to get sugar or salt free items or as low sugar/salt as possible (but sometimes honestly you just can’t get such options) so I hope these are helpful. Continue reading


Baby’s desserts

I used to find it hard to think what to give my kids for their dessert and usually served fruit or yoghurt. But once I started this site I got more adventurous and the following are some yummy and sugar free desserts that not only are so simple to make but also are baby friendly versions of grown up (sugar laden) desserts. They are great for younger babies too as they are all nice and smooth to eat.  Continue reading
