Spooky Spider Cake Recipe

Spooky Spider Cake


2 boxes of allergy friendly cake mix that fits your family’s needs

1 cup of coconut milk

1 banana, smashed

2 containers of allergy friendly chocolate frosting that fits your family’s needs

2 Free2b Chocolate Cups

Black pipe cleaners

Disposable frosting bag with small tip

Googly eyes


1. Make the cake mix according to the instructions on the box. We made our cake vegan by replacing the egg with 1 smashed banana to replace the eggs

2. Fill three 6X3 round cake tins with batter and bake according to the instructions.

3. When fully baked, remove from the oven and cool completely. Remove from the tins and cut off the very top part of two of the cakes so you have a smooth top.

4. Layer the cakes by frosting one layer and then stacking the next on top until you have all three cakes stacked. Smooth out the frosting using a frosting spreader.

5. Fill your frosting bag with the chocolate frosting and pipe out different sized lines to make it look like hair!

6. Add the googly eyes to the cups with chocolate frosting and stick them to the side of the cake. Add the black pipe cleaners to replicate spider legs. Serve and enjoy!

Robyn O’Brien Introduces Free2b Foods

In the spring of 2015, a team came together. Their mission was to transform a little chocolate company.

They met over chocolate cups in a tiny room on the outskirts of Boulder, Colorado.
But something big happened.

They came up with a concept that didn’t fit in that chocolate cup.

They saw a need to reinvent food for families living with food allergies.

Today, food allergies affect 1 in 13 kids in the United States. In the last eight years, EpiPen became a billion dollar brand.

Today, a food allergic reaction sends someone to the emergency room in the United States once every three minutes. The number of people with the peanut allergy in the U.S. quadrupled since 1997.

And these families need safe food, realized this team. A lot of it. How do we know? Because our team is made of parents who have children with life threatening food allergies. Our team is made of people who have incredible experience in the food industry, and our team is made of passionate entrepreneurs. Our team is made of moms who work in our factory, making all of our amazing treats with love.

We are starting with chocolate. It’s a pretty sweet place to start actually. We’ve already got distribution in Safeway, King Soopers, Ahold and Whole Foods stores around the country, as well as Wegmans, Ralphs’, Vons, Tom Thumb and more.

And we are going into Target in the spring of 2016, which we think is just awesome. We are super excited about it, because we want to meet parents where they are, shopping for their families in these stores.

All of our products are free from peanuts, tree nuts, soy, gluten and soon to be free-from dairy. We decided to remove dairy after too many friends lost their children to a life threatening reaction to a milk allergy. We get it. We know what food allergic families want, because our families have food allergies.

We are so proud to be Free2b Foods, and we can’t wait to help build a safer food system for our families.
