BABYCAKES NYC BAKERY IN LA

Confession: I have a massive sweet tooth, and a particular propensity for cupcakes. 


I haven't gone into it too much on the blog, because I'm not a health or food blogger, and don't have a desire to become one at this point, but in March, I figured out that I was allergic to gluten/wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, and (most) corn. It's been a huge adjustment, but I'm honestly feeling better than I have in a very long time, so cutting those things out is so worth it to me. 


Because of my sweet tooth, I've found a few substitutes to fill (some of ) the gaps where candy, cake, and cookies used to live. My favorite discovery has been Babycakes NYC bakery in Los Angeles. I vaguely remember visiting Babycakes during the summer I interned in NYC, but when my friend Meggie was out here to visit, we discovered that there are two LA outposts of the sweets spot, and decided to check one out. 


Oh. My. Gosh. You guys, I had a red velvet cupcake (okay, and a regular vanilla cupcake top too:)) that was so amazing. And not just in a "good for a special diet cupcake" way either. Babycakes cupcakes are gluten, dairy, soy, egg, refined sugar, and wheat free, and completely vegan and Kosher, too. At some locations, spelt versions are available too, if that's more your speed. 


There are locations in New York, LA, and Orlando, and if you're near one and happen to have food allergies, or just want to try out a new cupcake place, I highly recommend it! I'm plotting another visit to the LA location before we head back to Charlottesville in a few weeks. 
















Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. I just love cake a whole lot, and I like feeling good too, and I like sharing new places with people.
