Magnolia Bakery

>> Wednesday, November 5, 2008

This impulse decision to head to Magnolia Bakery could not have come at a better time.

This West Village establishment has made its name by creating the most delicious cupcakes in all of Manhattan. Yeah, I said it, most delicious.

It's been on shows like Sex and the City and for good reason. These little morsels are so moist and the icing is a creamy, buttery dream.

When you walk into the store you'll immediately notice the size. This is the true definitely of a bakery; quaint and filled with baked treats. Next you'll see the tray filled with all different sorts of cupcakes and boxes neatly stacked near by. Grab a box, fill it up, and head to the check-out counter.

I opted for a straight up yellow cupcake with vanilla icing and could not be more pleased. I knew that I wasn't going to get the freshest cupcake because it was 10 pm on a Sunday night, but still Magnolia did not disappoint.

Surrounding the bakery there is a park where you can still and enjoy your treat, much like I did.

Overall, going at 10 pm had it's pros and cons. Pros - not having to wait in line; Cons - not the freshest of cupcakes.

I would recommend Magnolia Bakery to anyone looking to satisfy a little sweet tooth :)

That bakery has all the bomb frostings...I love those cupcakes like McAdams loves Gosling...

1) No, the cupcakes are not good. The frosting is great...for like 2 fingers of licking. Then it gets kind of super sugary.
I think they use too much baking soda in their batter, and the actual cake is DISGUSTING.
Crumbs kills Magnolia, like 100 times. And it's maybe not even the best in the city.

2) Jef, the broke up. I'm sorry. It's over.

Fair enough Marcy. I did state that mine weren't the freshest but they were moist and the icing was sugarey, but that is what I like in a bit size treat - LOTS of sugar.

I have yet to try Crumbs, but this is obviously something I have to investigate!
