BabyCakes, an acclaimed New York City bakery, migrated to downtown L.A. with its signature gluten-, dairy-, wheat- and egg-free desserts. Staffers, typically in cutesy hipster garb, can be found frosting vegan red velvet cupcakes and glazing baked - not deep-fried - donuts. Owner Erin McKenna substitutes sugar, milk and butter for natural ingredients like agave nectar, coconut oil and Bob's Redmill gluten-free flour.
