There’s a pastry house in NYC that’s created quite a buzz – BabyCakes Bakery. In a city dominated by movement, action and a 24-hour-on-the-go lifestyle it’s easy to understand why so many New Yorkers are addicts.

BabyCakes Bakery: A Sweet Deal
What may astonish many New Yorkers about BabyCakes Bakery are their ingredients: sugar-free, gluten-free, soy-free, casein-free, vegan, and kosher friendly options. All this in brownies, cookies and cupcakes? Really? Indeed. Not only are their products made without chemical sweeteners and refined sugars but BabyCakes also stands by their slogan: “BabyCakes is good for you…” -Erin McKenna and Mad Men starlet Kiernan Shipka Founder Erin McKenna promises that all sweeteners used in BabyCakes products have been chosen responsibly and used sparingly. Most BabyCakes products derive their sweetness from agave nectar – a natural syrup from cactus. Not only is agave sweetener low on the glycemic index but it can often be a safe alternative for many non-insulin dependent diabetics. The products at BabyCakes have touched a nerve and developed a following so large that their Broome Street location in Manhattan has spawned outposts coast to coast from Los Angeles to Orlando. For founder McKenna it’s really all about catering to people with “persnickety diets.” With BabyCakes Bakery alternatives she can offer all-natural, organic, and delicious selections for everyone, regardless of their sugar restrictions. Nearly all of those with food allergies can enjoy a sweet treat sweetened by a little something different. The BabyCakes Bakery healthy lifestyle has touched many who had to swear off sweets or eat in a particular diet.
