I recently went to Babycakes in Downtown Disney. I became violently ill. I contacted the bakery to make them aware that I became sick. They suggested it was from something other than gluten.
No, it was gluten. I have very specific symptoms to gluten only. For example the only thing that makes me break out with dermatitis herpetiformis is gluten. All my symptoms are gluten specific.
Some where and some how someone made a mistake and cross contaminated the food. It was the ONLY place I had eaten other than my 100% gluten free home. I only had a bottle of water to drink. I even made sure to not touch the table before eating the cupcake from Babycakes. However, I became so ill that we had to leave Downtown Disney.
I called a friend of mine, also celiac, and she told me that she has also gotten sick after eating at Babycakes in Downtown Disney. Unfortunately for me she forgot to tell me as her experience was a year ago. She never contacted the bakery though.
I wonder how many other people have gotten sick. I imagine most people don't contact the place they've eaten to let them know.
Anyway, that's my warning. I will not eat there again. I do not consider it safe for celiacs. I am, however, a very sensitive celiac. Your level of sensitivity may differ, but I wanted to post because if I had found a warning post about Babycakes in DTD then I would not have gotten sick and missed the Cirque du Soleil show I had already purchased tickets to see. I also wouldn't be sitting here with the blistery rash that some celiacs enjoy.
