Dairy-Free and Egg-Free Desserts


When preparing desserts for large parties and children's birthdays, there is often a variety of diets and food allergies in attendence, including persons with lactose-intolerance, milk allergies, egg allergies and vegan diets, so it's good to be prepared! These dairy-free and egg-free dessert recipes are among my favorites, from cakes and cookies to custards and caramels, and they'll ensure that everyone can enjoy the celebration.
