Everything!! My favorite part was the fact that my son forgot his portion in the hotel fridge, so I was able to bring it back to VT and enjoy it, along with mine! I had almond, his was rocky road... yum!!

Fabulous for people with food allergies and gluten issues. The chocolate cupcakes are unbelievable even if you have no food issues.

I stopped at BabyCakes during a recent visit to NYC. So many options! Including for those with allergies and food sensitivities, such as gluten and sugar.

I got a mint chocolate chip cupcake, and my wife had a red velvet cupcake. They were both very good, especially considering what ingredients they DON'T use! We also bought a few goodies for the road.

The store itself is small, and some of their labeling is a little confusing, but overall, it's well worth a visit, especially if you have certain dietary restrictions!

For someone on a gluten free and dairy free diet, babycakes is the best way to gain some extra weight their cupcakes are delicious their agave brownie is out of this world and the cookies are amazing!

Haven't had donuts in years, so was excited to learn of Babycakes gluten free donuts. They are indeed worth the trek to Lower East Side. Have to confess, wolfed two cinnamon sugar donuts down. Such a treat! Even better--many of the items here are made with agave instead of sugar. On the downside--they are expensive (about $4), donuts are small, and on our first visit, had to wait some time before got any attention from the staff. But, donuts! What a treat!
