A local mom has been making waves in our community with her new baking business. Lillian Murtha, who recently opened an online bakeshop, Once Upon a Lil Cupcake, is making delicious and Instagram-worthy cupcakes — but what really makes her baked goodies stand out is that she can make them free of allergens such as gluten, nuts, egg, dairy, and soy. And they still manage to be oh so yummy!
“So many kids have allergies now, my own kids included,” she says. “It’s not easy buying something from the store because you either have to read every single ingredient or give bakeries the third degree! I started baking so my kids could have treats they weren’t allergic to.”
Once Upon a Lil Cupcake is quickly becoming the go-to place in my neighborhood to grab a set of birthday party cupcakes. Check out some of Lillian’s creations:
