Babycakes NYC: A healthy alternative to wedding cake
From the infamous Magnolia’s Bakery, to the Crumbs chain of cupcake stores, to the Treats Truckthat is currently parked in Union Square, the cupcake craze has reached an all-time high in New York City. With temptation on every corner (literally!), it’s tough to stay healthy and refrain from downing tons of sugar, flour and butter cream.
Luckily, thanks to Erin McKenna’s BabycakesNYC bakery on Broome between Orchard and Ludlow, it just got a little easier to stay healthy and still allow for some indulgence. Babycakes offers all-natural, organic alternatives to the super sugary treats that have overrun the streets of New York…. And best of all, they taste amazing!
This Lower East Side store has gained a following among locals who are health conscious, people with allergies and, yup… you guessed it, brides! Babycakes offers vegan and gluten-free wedding cakes, “table” cakes and cupcakes that brides are gushing over. And if you just need a little pick-me-up during the wedding planning process (or really any time that you’re on the Lower East Side), I would recommend the agave-sweetened red velvet cupcake with creamy vanilla frosting. Yum!
