I have an announcement to make that no one who ever meets me will find surprising: I love baked goods. I love baked goods so much that it is actually really dangerous for me to be around them. I would straight up eat a whole birthday cake on a random Tuesday if life was up to me, ya know? Anyway, everyone has their own food issues or food comforts and I found mine in Babycakes. Babycakes, was created by the uber cool, uber pretty Erin McKenna and aimed at creating a healthy and yummy brand for everyone to enjoy. I know you hear gluten-free, or vegan and think, “That’s not for me.” But let me tell you – everything at Babycakes is great for everyone. I dream of their yummy donuts and cookie sandwiches (I don’t even really dream unless its about food, that’s how hardcore I am.)

Growing up, my mom and I would always fight when it came to my birthday cake. She is French and believed that a tart or pastry-like dessert was better than those “gross American frosting cakes”. She is maybe right, but between the ages of 3-15, she was way wrong. Babycakes makes good food look fun and taste great. Here is the warning though: this stuff is so good that it makes you think you can eat as much as you want but guys, you can’t. That should really just be common knowledge. I don’t need to get all Julianna Michaels on you, do I ?

I have a serious girl crush on Erin McKenna and I am really pleased to announce that she will be doing a column for HelloGiggles. I hope that people send her tons of thank you messages for making donuts less shameful. That is a super important cause for me.

    at café thEATre (in Montreal) we take sliced banana or carrot cake, stick it in the panini press to carmelize it and serve it with a dollop of our famous whipped vanilla butter. Hey Kids, you can do this at home with gingerbread, or any sweet bread that’s ‘loafing'(ha–pun intended) around the breadbox.

    Theirs is the only cookbook I’ve read cover to cover like a book, and couldn’t put down. I’m obsessed. Enraptured. Overwhelmingly affectionate for this bakery. Especially since I have every food sensitivity known to man. I fear next week when I leave New York and go back to PDX and don’t have carrot cake cupcakes at my disposal every second of the day. FEAR.

    I cannot wait to try Babycakes! The idea of a bakery where dairy free me can have anything in the case = uber exciting.
