Sweets We Can Get Down With

Half Baked Co. opens its first storefront in Burbank

We always do a little happy dance when our kids are invited to birthday parties featuring treats from Half Baked Co. So you can imagine the full-on celebration we had over the weekend when the health-minded bakery (which substitutes ingredients such as applesauce for oil and almond milk for cream) opened its first brick-and-mortar location in Burbank. While the small-but-lovely storefront doesn’t sell individual cupcakes, per se, you can drop in any time to pick up a four-pack of minis (frosted while you wait), Oreo pops, and plenty of other goodies to-go. Still, their focus remains on over-the-top dessert tables and custom confections for parties—baked with half the fat, calories, and sugar as the usual suspects. Bonus: everything from the salted caramel cupcakes to the pink velvet cake pops can be made vegan or gluten-free. This way, everyone can have her cake and eat it, too.
