It all started with the dream and the love of a mother, Viviane Nguyen, who was trying to find an allergy free cake for the first birthday of her son. Since the age of 10 months, he was diagnosed with multiple severe food allergies, considerably limiting what he can eat. To avoid any anaphylactic reactions, the cake would have to be dairy free, eggs fee, nuts free, gluten free, soy free, etc. After contacting all the bakeries in Montreal, our dear mother realizes that none of them could make this cake. Despite the difficulties encountered, she did not abandon the idea and started doing a lot of research. Her son’s birthday will not be deprived of a cake. In time, she was able to bake by herself allergy free cakes, cupcakes and desserts that tasted great. She then reached her goal: a big allergy free cupcake for her son’s first birthday. He was able to enjoy his first cake happily and without any worries.
Now, she wants to share this joy with all those who suffer from allergies and food intolerances and offer them the opportunity to buy tasty and allergy free sweets. Hence the birth of the first gluten free, lactose free and allergy free bakery in Montreal named Petit Lapin in honor of her son who was born in the year of the Rabbit according to the Chinese calendar.
Almost everyone can now satisfy their sweet tooth without any worries!
