Allergies abound in the NYC area. In my daughter's preschool class of 21 there are three cases of severe allergies. Bringing in treats or celebrating a birthday can be rough. On my hunt for vegan, gluten-free treats I found OMG Cupcakes. I was gobsmacked by these goodies.
Last night my husband and I sat down with eight cupcakes. We traded back and forth between the standard (read awesome) cupcakes and the vegan, gluten-free offerings. It's a rough job, but somebody has to do it. Our take: Frankly we liked the VGF better! The red velvet cupcake is all I want for my next birthday party. Organic? Really? How the mother/daughter baking team of Nella Liska and Andie Markoe-Byrne pull it off is pure magic. The cupcakes were gorgeous and loaded with melt in your mouth icing.
Parents will be thrilled that they no longer have to order two sets of cupcakes the one batch for "allergy kids" one batch for everybody else. OMG Cupcakes offers traditional cupcakes in flavors such as, Chocolate Peppermint, Vanilla Bean, Fudge Brownie, and Pumpkin Pie Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting. For its gluten-free vegan customers, OMG Cupcakes features such varieties as Caliente Hot Chocolate, Hazelnut Mocha Mousse, my personal favorite Red Velvet, and many more. Delivery to Manhattan is free with a minimum purchase (from Canal to 96th Street), as well as to parts of Brooklyn, and other locations. Now you can just relax with one order for your next party and say, "Let them eat cupcake."
