By The Way Bakery in Hastings-on-Hudson

Look: I don’t care who, how cynical, or how totally over Magnolia Bakery you are. There is nothing quite as cheery as a string-tied bakery box of cupcakes.  Sadly, for a growing number of kids who are saddled with dangerous food allergies, even the innocent childhood pleasure of a box of cupcakes (not to mention birthday cakes) comes tempered with anxiety. Some bakeries have responded with dairy-, gluten- and wheat-free treats – but, to be honest, they’re not exactly the stuff of dreamy childhood memories.

Cute By The Way Bakery in Hastings-on-Hudson is addressing this problem by offering stylish, tasty childhood treats without many of the usual likely allergens.  Dairy- and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies practically fly out the door, while stands of cone-shaped macaroons seduce shoppers with more adult tastes.  And cupcakes, piped high with (only slightly unbuttery) icings sport soft, bouncy cakes – some flecked with vanilla seeds.  How do they do it?  It’s a mystery – but I do know that some of the regulars on this shop’s line have no idea that their favorite treats are gluten-free.
