I was soooo beyond excited when I heard that Babycakes was opening a bakery at DTD. I had long been a fan of this bakery. It was actually the first gluten free/dairy free cookbook that I bought after finding out I had food allergies (though not everything is GF in this cookbook, some recipes use spelt). So, naturally, I was ready to head over here and get lots of goodies. I emailed them ahead of time to see if it had any spelt items or if everything was GF/CF and it is. Hurrah! That meant I could eat ANYTHING I wanted from this bakery. I don’t even recall another bakery where I’ve been able to do that. I wanted to get a birthday cake as well, to take home with me (well send home w/my mom and stepdad). I was not disappointed. Holy cow there were a lot of choices. Donuts, cupcakes, cookies, parfaits…lots of good stuff!
We got there right as they opened, and one thing I found interesting after talking to the lady working there (I think her name was Brandi) was that Babycakes, unlike their NYC location, makes things throughout the day, rather than all in the morning. So the counter wasn’t so full yet b/c they were still making things and things were cooling.
Later in the day, this was fully stocked…
Donut counter. I sampled all of them!
Red Velvet and Chocolate Mint…both fantastic!
