For those of you who follow a vegan lifestyle, Babycakes NYC is a godsend. The vegan bakery also caters to those with food allergies and dietary restrictions with baked goods that are refined-sugar–free, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free or kosher. I don’t have any particular dietary restriction, but I visited Babycakes NYC with a friend of mine who is vegan. We tried a bunch of doughnuts and a red velvet cupcake.
Verdict: My friend who is vegan loved these, especially the salted caramel doughnut. I really love cream cheese frosting on my red velvet cupcake, so it didn’t appeal to me. But I’m not the target customer. I thought these were very good alternatives if you have a dietary restriction.
