Gluten-Free Christmas Wish
WOW! My Christmas came early this year, when Disneyland (gotta love the Mouse!) actually replaced a fast food restaurant (Mc D) with-get this- a DELICIOUS BAKERY called Babycakes NYC that is completely GLUTEN-FREE and vegan, to boot! While perhaps this bakery belongs in the Magic Kingdom's Fantasy Land, it is actually located in Downtown Disney. What a wonderful addition for all the patrons who have celiac disease (remember, it's 1 in 100 Americans!) or are gluten-intolerant, as well as those who have opted for a vegan diet.
Looking at the Babycakes NYC website will definitely stir up your appetite, as you drool over delicious appearing donuts, cupcakes and assorted pastries. This is an ideal time to remind everyone, though, that "vegan, gluten-free, and organic" do not equate with LOW CALORIE! Babycakes offers TREATS AND SWEETS, which are DESSERTS and should be enjoyed in appropriate portions.
BOTTOM LINE: Cheers to Disney for welcoming a delicious bakery for their health-conscious (and/or special health needs) Disneyphiles!
