BabyCakes NYC; New York City, Los Angeles, Orlando

Carrot Cupcake
Since founder Erin McKenna opened BabyCakes NYC in 2005, it has become an alt-baking phenomenon. In addition to locations in New York, Los Angeles and Orlando’s Downtown Disney (with spots in Chicago and San Francisco planned for this year), the franchise now includes gluten-free cake and brownie mixes, and two fantastic cookbooks. There’s also an app with video appearances from Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka, food writer Mark Bittman and pastry superstars David Lebovitz, Brooks Headley and Christina Tosi. Most bakery offerings are available gluten-free, including the moist, rich carrot cupcake, which is made with a garbanzo-and-fava-bean flour mix, agave nectar and coconut oil.
