I am having a joint birthday party for my children in March. A few of their friends have dairy, gluten and/or nut allergies. My children don't have any allergies. Do I need to provide an alternative to the regular birthday cake?
Some of these children have very severe allergies, and I'm not sure how careful I need to be if I make something (or pay someone else to make something) at home. It seems like a few of them are allergic to everything, and I would need to have six different variations in order for everyone to eat cake!

Mothering ate my reply so here's a summary of what I said (as someone whose hosted a couple such parties):
Ask the parents. They may prefer to make stuff to provide (to make sure it's all good) or they may recommend a good brand or recipe.
Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.
