Felicity loved having her very own dairy free cake for her 8th birthday

Happy eighth birthday to little Felicity, who was all smiles when her big sister Charlotte found our dairy free party cake at Asda Scunthorpe!

Felicity was diagnosed as lactose intolerant a few years ago and since then she’s been very vigilant in checking ingredients and not accepting any foods until she’s sure it’s dairy free.

Felicity’s big sister, Charlotte, had looked the cake up online to see if it existed, then took a trip to our store in Scunthorpe with her mum to track one down. When she found it in store she was so pleased that she ended up jumping up and down in excitement!

Charlotte said: "She finds it tough not being able to eat the same things as everyone else all the time, she misses “real” chocolate the most!

“We love the Asda Free From range, I think the cherry bakewells are her favourite. This is the first time in years she’s had a birthday cake in a box, from a shop – like everyone else has. Normally we have to order a bespoke cake.”

When Felicity saw the cake she said: “Wow! I’ve got my birthday cake, isn’t that cool?!”

Our Free From party cake is available in selected stores and online in chocolate or madeira sponge for £8 each. They’re gluten and dairy free and suitable for vegetarians.
