If you know me, then you know I love sweets. Cookies, cupcakes and donuts galore, sweets are just my thing.
I was at work recently and a coworker shared some vegan desserts he picked up from a vegan bakery around the corner. The piece of donut I had was great, so after work I headed over to scope the scene. Formally know as BabyCakes, Erin McKenna's Bakery is a highly popular vegan/gluten free/non GMO bakery. Arriving on the Lower East Side in 2005, Im a few years late but I was right on time to pick up some treats before they closed for the night.
I am not vegan or gluten free but I do know a good donut when I eat one. I had to come check out this bakery for myself because a vegan donut couldn't be that good could it? Absolutely at Erin McKenna's bakery they are.
Here's What I Ordered:
Red velvet cupcake with vanilla frosting
Vanilla frosted donut
Chocolate chip sandwich cookie with vanilla frosting
I cant confirm or deny that I went to this bakery 3 times in the same week. I completely fell in love with the vanilla donuts and chocolate brownies. I just needed to have one every day last week. And to take the guilt off myself for going all week, I just told people they were vegan! Both the brownies and donuts are soft, rich and flavorful and they handled my sweet tooth just fabulously. I just couldn't believe I was eating a vega gluten free brownie and donut. My mom loved the red velvet cupcake with vanilla frosting, and the chocolate chip sandwiches cookies are my next favorite.
With 3 locations including LA, Orlando, and NYC PLUS national shipping, there is no reason not to have a vegan dessert party!
