Erin McKenna's Bakery

    When Erin McKenna opened a bakery in Manhattan's Lower East Side in 2005, there were only two rules. The first was to use ingredients that were wholesome and harmless, and the second was to wear cute uniforms. Nearly a decade later, Baby Cakes is still whipping up indulgent treats from plant-based ingredients, and the staff looks adorable. The goal is simple: to make eating vegan and gluten-free fun and delicious. To that end, the bakers at Baby Cakes use a range of natural sweeteners and non-GMO ingredients to create a tempting assortment of cupcakes, donuts, brownies, cakes and cookies. While the bakery caters specifically to children with food allergies, gluten, dairy, egg and soy-sensitive adults and health-conscious individuals, it attracts a broad range of customers from all diets and lifestyles. The cozy space is bustling with bakers in the back mixing dough and frosting cupcakes and happy customers sipping tea and enjoying a treat in the front. Whether you're a diehard vegan, a gluten-intolerant lover of sweets or an omnivore who appreciates quality baked goods, Baby Cakes is the place for you.Show lessRead more
