baby cakes proposal



Ever been to this bakery in NYC?
Baby Cakes.
"Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Agave-Sweetened, Kosher Bakery on the Lower East Side of NYC "



"In a city dominated by cupcakes overflowing with sugar, flour and butter cream, it’s easy for those with persnickety diets to feel left out. BabyCakes offers all-natural, organic and delicious alternatives free from the common allergens: wheat, gluten, dairy, casein and eggs. Rest assured, all sweeteners have been chosen responsibly and used sparingly. White sugar will never be found in our bakery, nor will we ever use toxic chemical sweeteners. Instead, most products are sweetened with agave nectar—a natural syrup from a cactus which is low on the glycemia index and often a safe alternative to most non-insulin dependant diabetics. Occasionally, unprocessed and unrefined sugar is used in certain goods, although sparingly.

Erin McKenna
Founder,
BabyCakes NYC™"




and the owner just wrote a book...

Check out her blog and the cool engagement story that took place there.

so fun! our engagament occured as a complete surprise - I was in a massage and at the end I felt the masseuse putting my jewelry back on (the wrong hand) I ignored it and laid there basking in the delightfulness of a massage. When I finally opened my eye, my fiance was kneeling on one knee in front of me. That jewlery I felt was him putting my engagement ring on my finger! It was perfect and memorable! :)

Sounds like my kind of sweet shop. Would love to be able to visit it, if only I were closer.

I so need to go to New York.

My husband proposed by making a scrap book of all kinds of pictures, ticket stubs, cards we had given each other through the years and other momentos. At the end, there was a picture of a dozen roses and the words "Will you marry me?" He was behind me with the flowers and the ring :)

I wish that bakery were near me, it sounds great!

My husband used a bakery in his proposal,too. We had gingerbread cookies together right after we started dating, so they became our "thing." For the proposal, he had a nearby bakery make gingerbread people to look like us. The one that looked like him was down on one knee holding the real ring. :)

Oh, I wish I lived near there! I'm allergic to wheat and all the cupcakes floating around the blogosphere look so good!
