Peanut and Tree Nut Free Bakery

One of the things busy food allergy families often lament is how hard it is to find safe desserts for their allergic family. Desserts are especially prone to cross contamination with nuts, and of course almost always have dairy or eggs present.

Enter Melanie, owner of Courtney's Confections. Melanie has a daughter with a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts. She understands the frustration of searching for safe birthday cakes. She also understands what needs to be done to make a safe birthday cake.

This combination drove Melanie to open her own bakery in Columbus, Ohio, catering to those with allergies. She offers not only peanut/tree nut free cakes and cookies, but can provide egg and dairy free treats as well! And they are GOOD. Really, really good.

Next time you want to bring a scrumptious, and safe, cake to an event... call Melanie. You'll be happy you did.
