I'm not exactly sure where to post this. I do gluten free baking and have often been asked to do other allergen free baking too. I volunteered make a couple of cakes for my daughter's preschool end of year party. One is chocolate and I got a request for carrot cake for the other. I have made my carrot cake before for a few of the teachers and it has coconut in it. Now the school has a strict no nut policy. Though I am absolutely positive there isn't a coconut allergy among any of the students or staff, I don't want to ignore it purposely. I plan to call the school and ask their policy about coconut, but it made me wonder in general, is coconut considered a nut, especially in regards to allergen free baking? If the school tells me no to coconut I'll just leave it out, but do you consider it a nut?
