DSC_0188.JPGHoly crap! A post! I promised I'd be better at updating. Though I should be working on a case study.

I still have a few meals from spring break left. So on my way to wd-50 on the Lower East Side, I see this sign:

DSC_0189.JPGYes, a huge ass BAKERY sign that is just beckoning me to approach. It turns out to be Babycakes, which I had heard many good things about. "Gentle treats for delicate tummies" is their mantra; they feature baked goods with no sugar, eggs, nuts, gluten, dairy, or wheat. The amazing thing is that their products are really freakin good!

Behold, an excellent cupcake. The frosting was flavorful and not too sweet (ahem, Shitnolia). The cake was moist and had substance without being too heavy. I also tried the lemon one, which was great as well.

DSC_0190.JPGThese are some of my favorite blueberry muffins. At first, I wasn't quite sure how I felt about them. They were very light for being muffins, and the texture had a slight chewiness that I attributed to their veganism. But after my first one, I was hooked. In fact, I'm craving them right now. I think I might skip Slope Day for some LES eats (il Laboratorio del Gelato included).

DSC_0193.JPGThe cookies, I felt, were a bit overmixed. They were holey and lacking in texture.

DSC_0194.JPGCool, frosting shots for $1! If Magnolia offered that, it would be diabetes galore. Also notice that Babycakes has a really cool retro feel to it. Sooo if you are in the nyc area, be sure to visit.

I'm glad you liked Babycakes! It gets mixed reviews, but I figure some things are better than others. The chocolate cake with the chocolate goo all over it was the best thing I've had so far. I gotta try the muffin next time...
