FAQ's about our Gluten Free, Vegan Baked Goods

OUR BAKERY IS GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN, & GOOD FOR YOU

erin-tom

In 2005, Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC opened on the Lower
East Side of Manhattan with two rules:
1. Create a bakery free of harmful ingredients.
2. Wear cute uniforms.

Today, as then, we focus on the underserved—
people with gluten, dairy, egg, and soy
sensitivities, the health-minded, and, most
importantly, allergic kids who are often unable
to indulge.

We select all ingredients responsibly and use
our natural sweeteners sparingly. Our goal is to
make eating vegan and gluten-free fun and
delicious, and we’re very glad to have you with
us. Get cozy and enjoy!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

I’m on a gluten free diet, what can I eat?
Everything in the bakery is gluten free, so you can have everything without worrying about any form of gluten coming in contact with your sweets.

What is vegan at the bakery?
All of it!  We’ve got your covered right down to our sprinkles!  We’ve researched all our sweeteners, food colorings, chocolates, non-dairy milks, and flours to ensure there are no animal products or by-products present in our desserts.

What do you use as a sweetener?
We use both Agave Nectar & Vegan Sugar (or Evaporated Cane Juice).

Wait I forgot to ask: Do you use soy?
We do not use soy. HOWEVER. Our flour of choice, Bob’s Red Mill, is processed on the same equipment as soy flour. Proceed as you see fit.

Are you Non-GMO?
Yes, we are totally Non-GMO. None of that for us.

Are you completely organic?
No. Not all of the ingredients we use are organic.

Where can I find your wonderful, gluten free, vegan, and kosher baked goods?
We have storefronts in New York City, Los Angeles, and Orlando at Disney Springs.

Can I freeze my cupcakes, or anything else for that matter?
Don’t bother freezing the cupcakes. The components thaw at different speeds and it all gets a bit weird. HOWEVER again! You can definitely freeze everything else. Just wrap whatever it is snugly in plastic wrap and place it in an airtight container first. Most of the stuff will hold for two weeks or so.
