The first time I ever went to Babycakes NYC I was disappointed by the cupcakes, finding them dry and just not as exciting as I had hoped they would be. Since then I haven’t had much of an interest in visiting Babycakes until I heard about their donuts. Since you don’t come across vegan donuts everyday the Hubz and I decided since we were already in the neighbourhood that we would stop in and try a few.
After much debate and a little help from the girl behind the counter we decided on the french toast and the salted caramel along with one their heart shaped chocolate covered coconut mound. Immediately after we walked out the door we decided to dive right in and started with the french toast donut. The donut was out of this world! It tasted just like french toast! It was warm and mapley and caramely and oh so good. Next we tried the salted caramel which was also super sticky and delicious. We both agreed though that the french toast was the better of the two.
We held out on the chocolate coconut mound until the next day after a three hour trip to Ikea. It was the perfect treat after a crazy shopping trip. It honestly tasted just like a Mounds Bar but better. Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo, oh well.
All in all Babycakes redeemed themselves and we will be back!
