Good stuff

The cupcakes, brownies, and banana bread are great. I wasn't too crazy about the cookies, though, and I wish they made the red velvet cupcakes every day. They're just too good.

Finally, a guilt-free vegan dessert! It might be hard to find if you don't take a cab and/or aren't familiar with the area, but it's worth the time, EVERYTIME. Try the red velvet cupcake--it's to LIVE for! Scrumptious!

Best cupcakes ever

Babycakes makes the best cupcakes in the history of life. So long as Babycakes exists, I will not mourn the loss of my ability to eat gluten-y foods; you cannot feel sorry for yourself when the best cupcakes in the history of life just happen to be gluten-free as well. (No disrespect to their spelt cupcakes, which are similarly amazing; they were my transition cupcakes for a while.) I have also had the gluten-free cookies and brownies--you would never know that there is no gluten in them! But back to the cupcakes. Not too sweet, not too dense, but not too light; atypical in texture, at first bite, but then your tongue and your body adjust to the fact that, for once, you are not killing yourself by consumption. My only complaint is that the location is less than convenient. Please please please open more branches! I promise to do my part by continuing to buy cupcakes.

Love Babycakes. I happened to be across the street at Ten Bells with a GF friend and thankfully remembered Babycakes. We popped in after dinner and it was the perfect end to a fantastic evening.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
