While grocery shopping I ran across this brownie mix by the Enjoy Life brand. The idea popped in my head that I could use this brownie mix as a birthday cake for Kai!

If you have a child with food allergies I would highly recommend this product! It was the most simple recipe I have ever made and best of all it was free from ALL of the Top 8 (dairy, eggs, tree nut, peanut, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish). You literally only have to add oil and water.  For oil I used Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and I topped the brownie with Powdered Sugar. The baking instructions suggests to use a greased pan, however I used parchment paper to ensure that the mixture did not stick to my baking dish. I cut off the edges of the brownie to make it a square shape.

Needless to say that Kai loved and enjoyed it. I cried tears of joy seeing my baby girl so excited about having a birthday cake, a chocolate birthday cake. Kai has watched everyone around her have birthdays and blow out candles which has made her request a birthday cake however, she knows that she cannot eat it. So to see her be able to cut her own cake and enjoy it was a moment I will never forget!
