Medical science has established that special diets can help improve the symptoms of many types illnesses and diseases, and as a result, more and more people are now on special restrictive meal plans. If you’re baking cupcakes for a wedding or other special event, you may receive requests that you bake treats that are suitable for special diets, such as diabetic diets, gluten-free diets and nut-free diets. In the event that you receive such a request, follow these tips to ensure success: – Ask questions. The first thing that you should do when you receive a special request is to inquire more about the issue. Find out specifically what types of foods are off limits. If a person has a sugar-free diet, for example, ask what types of sweeteners they are permitted to have instead. – Find prepared recipes. While you may be tempted to try and convert your favorite cupcake recipe to one that is friendlier to the dietary restriction, this may not prove successful. Substitutions for ingredients can be complicated, and it’s often simpler to search for recipes that were developed to comply with certain diets. By conducting an Internet search, you can quickly find cupcake recipes for most special dietary concerns. – Bake a trial run. Once you’ve found a recipe or two, try them out and give them a taste test yourself. You may need to try several recipes before you find one that is both delicious and acceptable for the special diet. – Consider alternatives. If you find yourself stuck trying to find a suitable recipe for just one or two guests with dietary concerns, talk to the host or hostess about alternatives. You may be able to bake a special dessert for these individuals and serve your standard cupcakes to the other guests.
