Birthday parties

This weekend, Seeger was invited  to a birthday party. It wasn’t his first, just before Christmas one of his little friends had a party.  It was a lovely afternoon and the kids all had fun and were given a goodie bag and cake. Goodie bag…cake…we’ve got a vegan baby! With some discreet manoeuvring (hiding Seeger’s slice of cake before he saw it!) everything went well, and the host remained unoffended. She had gone to the trouble of making vegan savouries but had not realised about the cake she’d bought in – not many people seem to think about what goes into these things! Which brings us to this weekend…

The night before Amy and I were sat on the couch and she literally flew off around at 9pm rushing into the kitchen with shouts of “I need to bake a cake!” following behind her. After the first party it became apparent that we have to approach birthday parties much as we approach many other things being vegan – we have to go prepared. Amy had already suggested bringing a vegan cake to this host, who was worried about providing something for Seegs so that he didn’t feel left out. Vegan sandwiches had already been arranged too – the old favourite of houmous and grated carrot again!

Amy made a lovely chocolate cake but as it happened, Seeger never made it to the party, conjunctivitis and a cold kept him at home. But we had learnt from the first party…and look forward to the next one.
