Babycakes NYC in Disney

Celiac Review Babycakes NYC in Disney

Happy Magical Monday! Today’s post is all about Babycakes NYC: their storefront in Downtown Disney, their locations throughout the parks, AND their birthday cakes!

I love the cute storefront in Downtown Disney!

Most importantly, Babycakes NYC is a dedicated gluten free establishment, which means I never have to worry about cross-contact. While Disney is great about food allergies and celiac disease, it’s nice to be able to step into a store and not worry about all the other food around me.

AND, if you remember my trip around the parks last year to find Erin McKenna’s doughnuts, my journey is now much shorter because they’re storefront in Downtown Disney has reopened. AND, they also label which goods are sold at which locations on their website now. Phew!

We’ll start with the Downtown Disney location. They have a fully stocked storefront!

One reason I enjoy Babycakes is because I can’t have tapioca starch, and they do have a group of products that don’t use it. While that limits my options, I enjoyed stocking up on brownies and doughnuts. The doughnuts are a little “cakey,” but it makes for such a sweet treat! (And, be sure to buy extras for breakfast the next day!)

The brownies are by far my favorite. You can buy larger brownies at the storefront, but I like the mini ones with frosting. There’s even Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips inside of them! There are four different flavors: coffee, chocolate, strawberry, and mint. Strawberry is my favorite!

You can buy Babycakes products throughout the park at places like the Beach Club!

To see which vendors are selling which products, you can check on Erin McKenna’s website before your next Disney vacation. And, my last allergy dining trick needs to be planned FAR IN ADVANCE.

For my birthday, my mom surprised me with a Babycakes NYC cake. It was magical because I had a gluten, dairy, and egg free cake on my birthday AND in Disney! The bakery will deliver to any of the restaurants in town, so we had ours brought to Le Cellier in EPCOT. And, the cake was beautiful!

One lesson I learned from reading Erin McKenna’s cookbooks and from my own baking experiments is that gluten free and vegan goods tend to be best when they are mini size. It’s easier to get the texture and moistness down, which is why I loved the brownie bites above. Thus, the cake didn’t have the same texture that I love, but the frosting was tasty. And, I’m so glad there’s an option for allergy friendly birthday cakes in Disney World! Babycakes NYC in Disney

Babycakes NYC is a great addition to our Disney trip, and I hope it sticks around in Downtown Disney for a long time.

Have a magical week! BabyCakes NYC in Disney

  1. I love LOVED babycakes when I went to downtown disney for my senior cruise a few years ago, I was in HEAVEN that i could eat EVERYTHING, something that never happens for me, I loved her cornbread best 😀 I am SO glad your cake was so special, even if it wasn’t as tasty,t hat is so interesting about the “mini” revelation! I like big portions though 😛

    1. Hahaha, yeah, that’s why all the cookies on my blog are so small. BUT, you can eat a lot of them. That was actually one of the first gluten free cookbooks that we read. I don’t think I can have the cornbread, but I’ll have to see if I have the recipe in one of her books! I might be able to take out the tapioca starch. 🙂 Have an awesome week! 😀

  2. Babycakes is definitely great, I’m lucky to live in NYC where the home base is – but it is even better when you’re in Disney and having a blast and able to enjoy all the sweet treats on vacation!

    1. Yes, you’re certainly lucky! I’ve been to their storefront in NYC too. You’ve got a great hub of options down there. My dad took me on a two day trip to just try out your gluten free bakeries and such for my birthday one year. It was so much fun!! Thanks for reading too! ❤

  3. Thanks for the review. I am so happy to know that there is another place that is completely gluten-free, I hope they keep growing. I have fructose malabsorption which prevents me from eating wheat so it benefits many of us with various digestive disorders. Thanks!

    1. Awh, yeah, there’s a bunch of them if you go looking! I have a ton on my travel review page. The best spots to find them are Seattle and Portland. 🙂
