Hi! I'm the proud mum of 2 beautiful kids, Princess Pumpkinseed and Prince PeeWee. PW is a contact egg-allergy sufferer. Thus began my adventures into egg-free cooking, namely baking. From there, the cooking and baking evolved to include dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, gelatine-free foods. So let me share with you my trials and tribulations via this blog and my successes on my website (http://www.sointricake.com) So Intricake!

Father's Day and Gingerbread - Once upon a time........
With Father's Day round the corner, I kept checking with my two what they were doing for Daddy. Finally, we figured that I will bake a cake, the Princess will cook breakfast and Pee-Wee will butter toast (he figured everything else was too difficult and besides, he had made his dear ole Dad an Angry Birds card! Reckoned he had done enough). Mulling over what flavour of cake to bake, I settled on old-fashioned gingerbread. My grandmother used to bake gingerbread when I was really little aand I can still remember the taste and smells from way back when.....This was my first go at making egg-free gingerbread and the resulting cake turned out moist, fine-crumbed and down-right delicious, if I do say so myself. I think the picture speaks a 1000 words, all of them good, yes? Now I'm working on making it gluten free and dairy free. That will be great.
