Babycakes NYC & Orlando

The blurry photo is artistic.

Erin McKenna of Babycakes has built an empire based on cupcakes, doughnuts, cookies and all things baked. What sets her apart is that her recipes are free of: refined sugar, gluten, wheat, casein, soy and eggs and are vegan and are kosher to boot. How’s she do it? With style and finesse, not to mention hard work and lots of trial and error. But Erin, a model of a woman with a vision, made it happen and now we get to enjoy the fruits of her labor.

First I became emotionally attached to her cookbook and then her second one…I’ll get to that later…

I had the opportunity to visit one of her store fronts at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. There are also Babycakes bakeries in New York City and Los Angeles. Was it everything I imagine? Did the “happiest place on earth” give me the happiest tummy on earth? You betcha. Babycakes Orlando did not disappoint.  

After spending the day frolicking around the parks, I promised the kids a sweet treat with a very selfish motive in mind, I wanted me some real-deal Babycakes.

And Babycakes I got.

Clockwise from left to right: Blueberry Toastie Loaf, vanilla cupcake, vanilla glazed doughnut and carrot cupcake.
Blueberry Toastie

Loaded with blueberries, moist and delish.
So pretty.
Yes, I had to share. Four ways.
This is the doughnut. And it went in my mouth.
We had to have two. It was too difficult to decide.
Nom, Nom, Nom.
They were each unique in their flavor, but consistently moist and sweet, but not too sweet. It had been a long time since I’d eaten a cupcake or doughnut and these were definitely worth the trip. Remember whatever your own or a member of your family’s dietary restrictions, Babycakes has got you covered. You can order and have baked goods delivered (really!) or…Check back soon for a couple of my favorite recipes from the Babycakes Cookbooks...

  1. I honestly don't know how these could still be good without all of those ingredients, but I trust your judgement! Wish I was in the area so I could check it out!!

    1. Oh, no they weren't just good, they were divine. Trust me...and you're in Cali...there is a shop in LA. Just sayin.

  2. These look so amazing! And I have to say that I think that "babycakes" is about the cutest name for a bakery shop ever. Kind of wish I thought of it! Just found your blog and I've enjoyed getting to know you better. I'm excited to follow along!
