Respond to Review of CLOSED: Babycakes - downtown LA
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: We checked out Babycakes on their opening day, but it wasn't until 5pm, so there was no street parking issue for us. However, many items were already sold out, like the donuts, brownies and chocolate crumb cake, but there were plenty of cupcakes to choose from. We got a chocolate one with vanilla frosting and a pumpkin one. The chocolate was a bit dry, but the pumpkin was moist and yummy. And the frosting on both was divine as it was not too sweet as compared to regular frosting. We also shared the blueberry crumb cake which was better than the cupcakes! Super moist and oh so tasty. These three items cost us $12, but it appeared everyone was willing to pay it as a long line started to form again as we were leaving. We also saw Erin in the store and people were taking pictures with her as they were clearly fans of her baking. A friend had bought me her cookbook, but I haven't tried anything yet as the ingredients are less common, but after trying them, I will have to give it a go! Too bad I don't work downtown anymore, so I would have preferred a WeHo location (which was mentioned in her book), but an all vegan bakery in LA is just awesome! Thanks Erin!
