I ate a lot of meat last week. A lot. My carnivore parade began on Tuesday with pork at The Breslin and ended on Saturday with a Reuben at Katz’s. In between, there were stops at Po for guinea hen and bolognese and DBGB for sausages.

On Sunday afternoon, my arteries and stomach begging for reprieve, my husband and I happened to walk by babycakes, a 100% vegan bakery on the LES. It couldn’t be interpreted as anything other than a sign.

In addition to being dairy-free, babycakes’s baked goods are wheat-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free, and guilt-free. Their cupcakes, brownies, cookies, and loaves are made of spelt and sweetened with agave nectar. They also offer baked goods that are gluten-free.

The cupcakes were not the moistest we’ve ever had, nor the sweetest, but they were surprisingly good. And better yet, we felt good about eating them.

Am I a convert? Maybe on Sundays.

You can learn more about babycakes and their ingredients at their website. They deliver in Manhattan and ship outside the city.
