New Orleans Children taste King Cake for the First Time-
Thanks to a Local Mother Who Finds Her Niches as a Gluten-Free Baker:
NEW ORLEANS (February 13, 2010)- The brainchild of a working mom, the CUPCAKE KING CAKE was created to provide those who live with food allergies, diabetes, celiac disease, autism or special diets with delicious desserts rather than ones that taste like cardboard.
Chase Nugent is a veteran of the television and digital broadcast industry, and self described New Orleanian. In 2008, Chase’s son, John Dunn was diagnosed as having a gluten and casein allergy. So a nationwide search began to find John delicious gluten free/ casein free cupcakes. Her search turned up many recopies yet they were more like dry, tasteless softballs.
Unsuccessful in her pursuit of gluten-free/
The result, the CUPCAKE KING CAKE, created so that everyone can participate in the tastiness that is the king cake. It's a king cake made out of six cupcakes, and it comes with both black and white King Cake babies.
Make sure the next person to bring a King Cake to your party brings this one so everyone can enjoy it!
