I am always so excited to receive Gwyneth's Goop updates. Today's Goop Make post was about Babycakes Bakery. Health conscious foodie Erin McKenna's concept is sugar-free/vegan/gluten-free. They look deceptively delicious! When in New York my favorite cupcake is at Magnolia Bakery. These cupcakes have New Yorker's standing in line for the old fashioned, melt in your mouth taste. This crowded little bakery is one of the stops on the Sex and the City Tour. Back in L.A. known for their cakes with fresh berries and the lightest whipped frosting, my sister's favorite, Sweet Lady Jane's. I was first introduced to the biggest red velvet cupcake at Auntie Em's in Eagle Rock, sweet! In Pasadena Dot's , lovely little designer cupcakes are a perfect gift nestled in a polka dot bakery box. The mini-cupcakes are the best deal in town. The cupcakes at Violet's are topped with dollops of sugary frosting swirled artfully like beehive hairdo's. Love the Elvis cupcake and the Red Velvet with chocolate instead of cream cheese frosting. I can't forget Heirloom Bakery in my hometown South Pasadena, with their hostess cupcake inspired design and just as decadent. I hope to hear some of your sweet tooth favorites until then, Sweet Dreams!
