The shop is cute but definately too small if you plan to devour your cupcakes on the spot. I haven't eatten a vegan cupcake that doesn't taste like the main ingredient is sand in two years, infact I have just about given up eatting cake entirely because of the difficulty in obtaining decent vegan baked goods in that vegan food desert that is New Jersey. But their chocolate cupcake was really good, the icing was yummy and not greasey or weird in any way. The only problem I had at babycakes was having enough money to pick up a few treats for later as each cupcake cost more than four dollars! Ouch! Looks like I may have to give up cake anyway, but I am tempted to buy their cook book to see if this result can be replicated in my own kitchen.

Even though the lighting was bad and the door knob almost fell off when I tried to turn it, I love this bakery. It was small and cramped with a constant flow of customers, so New York. If anything, I picked up that this bakery was not afraid to be itself. It has a personality and a story, and it is not trying to be something it is not. Good news about the location, I was able to park on the street, for free, less than a mile away. The name of the store implies that this is just another cupcake shop, but this bakery sells everything. Cakes, pies, cookies, breads, muffins, and you name it. The best part is that it is completely vegan, so there are no weird conversations to be had about eggs, milk, and butter. The bakery also has refined sugar free, gluten free, soy free, and kosher options. Once you visit, you will be in love too. And do not worry about cravings, because BabyCakes delivers local and all over the States.

SO GOOD. Fresh out of the shop, the frosting was a little chilled and it taste like the best cream cheese ever. I saved half of the cupcake for later, trying to use portion control, and when I had the frosting at room temp, it was like butter. And if you follow my post, you know how much I cherish a good buttery . . . anything. The whole bite dissolved down my throat before I could even chew, or that is how my mind remembers it happening. You can even see the carrots in the cake, but it is so well made that you can fool you pickiest child. It is just that good. The cake is soft, moist, great chew, great taste, and great color. It has a nice balance of crumble and hold. And the presentation is all in the frosting. There swirl is perfectly brand, but not pretencious. Uniformly hand-made not commercial. I loved everything about BabyCakes and the Carrot Cupcake. I have to say again, SO GOOD.
