Oh Baby Cakes!

look at the smile that jumps on my face when I am in a cupcake bakery!
 
wandering down an old familiar street in downtown LA (on 6th in between Main & Los Angeles Street), I spotted, after lunch....a cute little place called Babycakes! And "Whoa baby! Do I love cupcakes!"....and this little store was a treat for tastebuds and eyes!
I loved the cute, fun, party colored ribbons on spools!
I was mesmerized my the options! Do I want chocolate with vanilla icing, red velvet......I better get 2!!! 
all their cupcakes are Vegan, egg free, soy free, you can choose gluten free...but yummy-filled!
I loved this saying printed on the delicate, pink, oh-so-girly, boxes, that they package your "fresh-from-the-fridge" cupcakes....the icing is so good, it melts at room temp!
me, pointing to the Babycakes NYC, sign from inside the store (it's it a twinkle in my eyes from cupcake excitement, or just the glare from the windows! ha ha ha 
here's my dainty little goodies....they are like a mix of 50's paintings, and thick, cold icing..mmmmm!
(and how stinkin' cute are the stripes on the inside of the box!?!)

 
Babycakes, is like a pink-retro oasis in the middle of Downtown LA!

 
this was my favorite...the LADIES sign underneath a tower of Babycakes boxes!
You can even order cupcakes, and have them delivered, they even have a do-it-yourself cookie kit...fun idea for mother's day! Peep their wonder at: www.babycakesnyc.com

This was my nice reward....a little cupcake love!

And just on a sidenote because I know everyone was asking me:
If you want to get your hands on a Hello Kitty purse like mine...go to

And for everyone that asked for my leg update:
Hurts super bad, I tried to put a little weight on it today and it felt like I ripped my stitches apart! YEOWWWWW! I needed another dozen cupcakes, STAT! ha ha ha ha
(and by the way, I am typing this in the air....when I edit a video or type a blog, it helps distract me from my dislike, or fear of flying! ha ha ha
 So this will be the world's longest blog, ha ha ha ha, to keep  my distracted the whole flight! ha ha ha
huge love, fromm the mile high blogger.....your kandee
PS my battery died in the plane for my computer...so I had to finish editing this with my leg elevated on a ladder rung on the bottom of my little people's bunk beds! ha ha ha

I love cupcake's too! There is this shop where I'm from in downtown Ann Arbor (where the University of Michigan is) the best cupcakes ever! http://www.cakenouveau.com/home.html I hope they'll get a lot of business when President Obama is in town because it's much deserved! Oh yeah, and the owner has been on the Food Network too!

Stick in there with your leg. You seem like a glass is half full kinda person, but it's good to hear those "feels betters!"

Feel better, and keep up with the awesome blogs! =]

Yummm Babycakes! I've been to Babycakes in NYC but I didn't realize they had one in LA too! I'm vegan, so it's like cupcake HEAVEN in there! haha.

I hope your leg gets better though, doll! You're strong enough to get through it! Take care :D

Hi Kandee, I just wanted to say that you are an inspiration, you love everyone, you're kind, and you take insults in stride, even if they hurt you. My name's Alisha, I'm 16, and I really wish there were people in this world more like you, especially in school, people really don't understand, (or they don't want too) we just want to spread a little more light and sunshine in the world thats all... :( Have a wonderful day/night and know that there are more people who want to accomplish the same thing you do...! :) Forever a friend of the sunshine people, Alisha

Oh, Kandee! Cupcakes are my newest favorite thing ... I think they must be the girliest treat around! And so cute! Have you ever seen the little Japanese erasers that look like desserts and ice cream and other sweet stuff? I don't remember what they're called, but you'd love them ... My birthday is in one week (May 7) and talking about cake makes me excited!
xoxo and God BLESS!

Hi Kandee!
I wish I could suround you in cupcakes that would take away all you pain and you WOULDN'T have to put weight on your leg, because you would be floating on a cloud of cupcakes...or maybe that's how it would feel from the sugar hi :) Hope you keep getting better hun!
My most awesomest sweetest only girl cousin Julie has a cupcake company in the LA area. She started making cupcakes for her kids parties and then it spread from there. I thought you and your little ones might get a kick from her amazing cup cake creations... Soooo CUTE! <3
