Babycakes is by far the most adorable bakery I’ve ever been to. It’s located on a quieter side street of bustling NYC, but there is nothing quiet about the inside.
It’s cozy and retro feeling, with the tiniest kitchen, literally the size of my little kitchen at home.
But my kitchen has never seen so many tasty baked goods.
Babycakes specializes in – are you ready for it – vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, casein-free, egg-free, vegan and kosher baked goods. Most of them are also refined sugar-free and made with different flours like spelt, garbanzo, sorghum.
It may not sound appetizing to some, and you may be wondering what exactly they do use but trust me when I say that I doubt you would even notice that it wasn’t full of butter, sugar and white flour.
We sampled a number of their offerings: Spelt cupcake, GF Blueberry Crumbcake, GF Cupcakes, GF Brownie and a GF Pumpkin Loaf for the plane ride home.
Everything was beyond delicious. The Blueberry Crumbcake was probably my favorite, along with the frosting which you can also just get a shot of. Yes, I was tempted.
Babycakes has recently expanded to LA and Disney World, spreading allergen-free and vegan baking all over the US. I might have to squeeze in a visit to the LA location when I’m in town next month. I’m craving some GF, vegan crumbcake. And I never thought I’d be saying that.
