Just want a simple nut/peanut-free cake at Disney World
This Sept. will be my family's third trip to Disney World and we will be there on my daughter's 9th birthday. We are trying to get a cake for her birthday. The only option that we have is a cake made from a Namaste mix, which has no wheat or dairy. Jessica's allergies are to peanuts, other legumes and tree nuts. I applaud all that Disney does to keep children with allergies safe and appreciate the difficulty of catering to a large number of people with multiple food allergies. However, my daughter is used to traditionally prepared cakes. A Namaste cake would be a waste of money since no one would eat it and --my daughter being the emotional and sensitive kid that she is-- would ruin her birthday. She has tried all sorts of snacks (Enjoy Life etc.) that are wheat free and she does not like them.
I have spoken to the "cake hotline" and they have been no help. I am in contact with the special dietary person, but so far they are not much help either.
Anyone have suggestions? As a last resort, I can bring something into the park but it cannot need refrigeration and it must be something that I can either carry on the plane or have delivered and that does not require refrigeration.
