Babycakes now has only one location in Los Angeles since they've shut their doors in Downtown.

The self-proclaimed all-natural, allergen-sensitive bakery, Babycakes NYC, will be closing its doors in DTLA after three years of serving cupcakes, cookies, muffins and "skinny buns" on 6th Street.

Babycakes' blog explains the reason for the closure closure: "To free up some of our fine management crew and other resources we are unifying our two Los Angeles bakeries: Our Larchmont flagship will now be our sole Los Angeles storefront, with the downtown Los Angeles location closing its doors."

The NYC-based bakery opened in downtown L.A. in 2010 -- much to cupcake fans' delight. Their wide variety of baked goods are typically dairy-free, egg-free and gluten-free and uses alternative ingredients like spelt and agave.

"Rest assured, all sweeteners have been chosen responsibly and used sparingly," according to Babycakes' website

Although the DTLA location is closing, Babycakes is opening new locations in San Francisco and Chicago. L.A. Weekly reports that in Los Angeles, Babycakes will keep their Larchmont location as well as distribute the bakery's vegan goods at L.A.-area stores including M Cafe, Erewhon and Downtown's own Artisan House.
