My son's 1st birthday is coming up in 2 weeks and my wife and I are having a little disagreement. He's been 100% paleo since birth, completely breast fed until 7 months and then added liver, ground beef, egg yolks, fruit, startches, etc. We are having a family gathering for him and my wife feels he needs the "first birthday cupcake experience." You know the one where you get all these cut pictures with your child shoveling icing and cake all over his face. We did it with our oldest son, however, we were not Paleo then.
I would prefer just to make him some Paleo Pudding (avocado, banana, cocoa) and put a candle on it but she wants a cupcake. She's willing to compromise with a Gluten Free Cupcake but we can't bake to save our lives and I am afraid of the amount and type of sugar a local baker will add to it. Should I just chill and compromise with a gluten free cupcake from a baker or should I stick to my guns?
