‘’A cupcake a day keeps the grumpiness away!’’    

~As long as they’re Allergen Free Cupcakes!!!

Having lived with severe allergies all my life, I often find it extremely hard to find café’s and coffee shops that can cater for my food allergies and usually just end up ordering a coffee on it’s own. I would always eye up my friends treats and tray bakes, wishing I could try a piece with my coffee however, the staff always warned me that it may contain nuts as they handle nuts in kitchen.

So I set out to try to find Allergen Free Bakeries in Ireland and the UK so that I could purchase a safe traybake or cupcake in advance and bring it with me when I go for coffee. Or even host coffee dates at my house with delicious allergen free bakes that look much more appealing than my home-made attempts!

I’ve listed a few bakeries that cater to special diets below. These bakeries express their allergy policies and offer products that are free from at least one of the top 14 allergens. Some bakeries specialize in elimination of one or two allergens while others have kitchens free from gluten, soy, eggs, dairy, peanuts and tree nuts.  Make sure to communicate your allergies to the staff and read the allergy policy and ingredients thoroughly. Some of these bakeries have stores however others are mainly online through Facebook or their website and may only deliver a certain distance from their store.

Find some Allergy Friendly cakes, traybakes, cupcakes, donuts, breads, cookies and more below!

If you know of other allergy friendly bakeries (with items free of at least one of the top 8 allergens and offer online ordering and shipping) please contact me so we can add them to our list! Also if you see an out of date info let me know!

**Please remember to read all allergen policy statements on the bakeries websites ad speak to staff before ordering as policies may change over time**
