That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to eat this snack, she would have a very severe rash for the remainder of the day. Most of us send snacks that avoid peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat. But, allergies come in many different forms. For classroom birthdays, I always avoid food.

Hi Bustermonkey, you make a good point. There are also children who are allergic to apples, so even the natural applesauces would be an issue. I think the thing to consider, whatever the occasion, is who is the audience, and what are the specific allergies people are dealing with. With obesity and allergies such a concern across America, I applaud using fruit as a treat, but only if it is safe for the intended audience. Non-food treats are also a great choice.

Can someone explain to me what it means by 1 lemon zest and juice.

You start with one lemon, and then use all the zest and juice you can get from it. I have a little hand zester to use on the peel to get the zest. Then I either cut the lemon into wedges that I squeeze by hand or cut it into half to use on a small juicer.

You want the zest and the juice from 1 lemon. Zest it first, then cut it in half and juice it.

The zest is the yellow skin of the lemon. You can use a small grater to get it off the lemon. Try not to get much of the white stuff that's underneath the skin, as this is bitter.

The FDA considers coconut a tree nut; however, coconut is actually seed of a drupaceous fruit and is normally safe for those with tree nut allergies. Most tree nut allergic individuals can tolerate coconut, but it is always best to discuss coconut trials with your doctor

Doesn't powdered sugar have corn starch in it? At least all the powdered sugar I have looked at does.

There are corn free versions of powdered sugar. Maybe someone else reading this can tell you if they know a brand you can check out.

Trader Joe's powdered sugar is corn-free.

...or, you can make your own powdered sugar in a "dry" Vitamix blender container by grinding up regular sugar...but I prefer to buy it at Trader Joe's since I feel as if I make almost everything else mysef! Trader Joe's version has tapicoa starch instead of corn starch.

Wholesome Sweeteners powdered sugar is also corn free - it uses tapioca starch. Trader Joe's is great, but it's only available "seasonally" during the winter/holiday baking season. They may still have some left, so stock up if you find it!

My Trader Joe's stocks it all year... I wonder if you could get it more often by talking to the store manager? They are always very nice. I'll bet Trader Joe's "brand" is really repackaged Wholesome Sweeteners!

These are delicious! I used light brown sugar since the recipe didn't say which. Also used rice milk instead of just water for the frosting. And palm shortening. We like tart, so we used less sugar in the frosting than it called for. They were a big hit with kiddos AND grown ups. Thank you so much...we added the recipe to our kitchen's, "Good Safe Stuff," binder!
