Along with recipes for doughnuts, waffles, and cupcakes, the app is also a bake-along with pseudo-celebrity personalities including Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka, New York Times columnist Mark Bittman, and Momofuku chef Christina Tosi. In addition, it features music by Cults, Bleached, and Bubbles, as well as an original BabyCakes theme song by J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. The trendy app also features exclusive recipes for pretzel and sandwich breads that have yet to debut at the Manhattan storefront.
