Finding out your child has an allergy can be an overwhelming experience. Not only do you have to manage them from a medical perspective, but there is that constant tug, that worry, that need to protect.
The recipe I chose was published in the most reputable allergy journal by an expert in the field whom I greatly admire. I was confident that if she can bake six cupcakes, so can I. What could possibly go wrong? Were the cupcakes going to be as hard as rocks? Inedible? I was willing to bake, fail, repeat until I got it right.
