Peanut/Nut Free in NYC!



 Q: My 2.5 year old son is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. I am finding I need cakes and cookies more regularly for all the parties and it's been hard.  If you happen to know of any brands or shops that might be good, please let me know.


A: It is very hard when kids are young and there are so many different parties and events revolving around cupcakes! I promise it gets easier as they get older. Here are some other options for Peanut/Nut Free in NYC from parent Melanie S.
