En Vitesse: Babycakes LA Update!

Still my favorite NYC (or anywhere) cupcakery to date Babycakes - which I've definitely mentioned before - has been promising LA its very own organic and delicious wheat, gluten, dairy, casein and egg-free YUM factory for quite some time now. After several lease swaps and multiple delays, finally, some bittersweet but promising news!
L.A. people: this is going to hurt, but only for a second, ok? We all know that the economy has taken a turn for the worse and is affecting millions of people's lives. In lieu of these challenging times, Earnest Sewn has decided to abandon the project on Beverly Blvd. I know, I know. We are right there with you, we had a good group cry for almost the whole week.
But don't freak, there is excellent news: we have signed a lease on a location in the historic bank district of Downtown Los Angeles! The new BabyCakes NYC will be nestled on one of our favorite blocks and we are so excited to be there. We've got a great team of people working overtime to get this opened super fast, so please don't worry. We know it has been a bumpy ride so far, and are so grateful for your patience. We will have more news soon, compete with a grand opening date, so just hang in there for a tiny bit longer.
Another score for my favorite neighborhood these days..!
You GO, Downtown!

Also, check out this incredibly charming video preview for the Babycakes Cookbook coming out May 2009! (Ladies, if you don't want Babycakes brainchild Erin McKenna's hair after watching this video, there's something wrong with you).
