Bunnie Cakes Mariana CortezMariana Cortez started baking out of her house and was making a cake for her oldest son Luke who was turning 2 at the time, but not just any cake would do. Luke had recently been diagnosed with a speech delay and had a dairy allergy. So Mariana decided to switch him to a gluten free/casein-free diet to see if it would help him develop his speech and vocabulary.
