THE ROCKY ROAD TO HEALTH

{ MAKING A BIRTHDAY CAKE FOR A CHILD WITH 26 ALLERGIES FORCED DANIELLE PROCTOR TO THINK OUTSIDE THE SQUARE. }

Making a birthday cake for a child with 26 allergies forced Danielle Proctor to think outside the square.

The result was a gluten, peanut and egg-free rocky road ‘cake’ which was a hit with her children, as well as their teachers, friends and before long, the whole neighbourhood.

Now everyone can enjoy allergy-free rocky road bars from The Rocky Road House, which has just launched a new online shop and fundraising program.

Danielle always had a love of baking, and still remembers the family-famous jam drops she made as a 12-year-old. But her cooking methods had to change when her daughter Lauren was diagnosed with her first allergies – to dairy and rice – at just six months old.
