Babycakes bakery opens in Disney World, offers vegan treats


Now vegans, as well as those who suffer from gluten allergies, can satisfy their sweet tooth while vacationing at Disney World.

Babycakes Bakery, which features baked goods free of animal products as well as gluten, wheat, casein and refined sugars, opened last week in the downtown Disney Marketplace at Disney World Resorts in Florida.

Babycakes replaced McDonald's as Disney severed its ties with the junk food giant four years ago and have been phasing them out of their parks ever since (Yeah!) Babycakes will take up residence next to a latin themed fried chicken place called Pollo Campero (Boo!)

Babycakes' original store is located on the lower east side of Manhattan, additionally the company operates a bakery in Los Angeles.
