Bit-O-Joy, No. 1

dscn0783Food is central to life.  Not just eating but also entertaining and socializing.  This is a serious issue for me and my food allergic boys.  It probably is for you, too.

I have learned to cope with some efficiency tips that I call Bits-O-Joy.  Here’s number 1.

Make gluten-free safe cupcakes a dozen at a time.  Use what you need and place the remainder in a freezer bag, label and freeze immediately.  When you get a call at 9:00 p.m. on a school night that one of your child’s classmates is celebrating a birthday the next morning at school you will be ready for it.  Pull out a cupcake, frost it with safe frosting and sprinkles and stick it in the backpack.  I also do this with cookies, brownies and doughnuts so I can match whatever is being brought into school.

  1. What a great idea! Thanks for the tip. I don’t always want to go through all the work to make one cupcake, but freezing them for later makes it worth the time to save time later.
