I’ve been anticipating the opening of Babycakes for months.

Every time I went to the downtown location, they were all sold out of the good stuff, so I’m psyched to have one within walking distance that I can pop into during my morning walk.

Founder Erin McKenna was there…

…making those allergen-free donuts herself…

…she and the rest of her staff seemed a little overwhelmed – they’re very popular already!!!

Unfortunately, I was on a walk with Julius this morning and had no wallet, so I didn’t buy anything. Definitely plan on coming back when I have $$$, things are less crazy at the store, and Abe can join me. (Like tomorrow, most likely.)

In the meantime, I got my baking on at home – a loaf of Chai Gingerbread

This most certainly was NOT vegan or gluten-free

Used a Trader Joe’s box mix (subbed a mixture of coconut butter/butter for the oil) and added flavor to the water with a Chai Tea Bag

Sampled a little of the finished product – to be honest, I don’t taste any extra spice…

…I’ll find out more at tonight’s party when we cut into it.

In the meantime, I still ate some brown food…

…the freezer breakfast burritos turned out pretty good!!!

A late afternoon snack to tide me over til the evening’s festivities –

Just finished writing my eating guide to New Orleans for Privy Magazine! God, I’m still digesting those meals…

    I am thrilled to hear about babycakes! I have tried and failed at finding the other location. I can’t wait to try it!

    So glad I don’t have That store within walking distance!

    Donuts are HUGE right now! I love it! I got a donut pan in my stocking and made some yesterday – they were fabulous. I have never been to a Babycakes before, but it looks good!
