be my.... baby cake!

heard of it? well if you haven't, listen up!
babycakes is new yorks famous vegan bakery!
In a city dominated by cupcakes overflowing with sugar, flour and butter cream, it’s easy for those with persnickety diets to feel left out. BabyCakes offers all-natural, organic and delicious alternatives free from the common allergens: wheat, gluten, dairy, casein and eggs. Rest assured, all sweeteners have been chosen responsibly and used sparingly. White sugar will never be found in our bakery, nor will we ever use toxic chemical sweeteners. Instead, most products are sweetened with agave nectar—a natural syrup from a cactus which is low on the glycemia index and often a safe alternative to most non-insulin dependant diabetics. Occasionally, unprocessed and unrefined sugar is used in certain goods, although sparingly.
founded by new yorker erin mckenna.
 sometimes, good things can come from bad news. While working in the fashion business Erin was diagnosed as allergic to wheat and dairies. Not wanting to totally give up on sugar and sweets, she then tried baking and trying recipes for mouthwatering deserts that she can tolerate!
and taa-daa.... Babycakes was born!
she has since appeared on the likes of martha stewart and the food network and has several recipe books under her belt!
the website and blog are equally amazing, complete with cute as a button imagery, ingredient details and you can purchase merchandise!
