Magnolia Bakery


'Magnolia Bakery', located at 401 Bleecker Street and W. 11th Street in New York's West Village, is cupcake heaven. Not only that but their Red Velvet mini Cheesecakes are to die for. I love Red Velvet so the first cupcake i went for was their red velvet with vanilla cream frosting... it was good but i think cream cheese frosting is way better. There are tons of flavors to choose from and each one has its own distinct charm.
Mini Cheesecakes
Georgetown Cupcake
There are people on the sidewalk lined up for cupcakes everyday... no surprise! a whole tray full of them disappeared before my eyes in a matter of minutes. Some of the crowd favorite flavors are German Chocolate, Devil’s Food, Hummingbird, Caramel, Banana and of course Red Velvet. Other than cupcakes you can find the most amazing Carrot Cake and their Banana Pudding is also worth trying. But if you are looking for quality cupakes then the place worth mentioning is 'Georgetown Cupcake' also known as 'DC Cupcakes', located in SoHo at 111 Mercer Street (between Spring and Prince street). DC stands for 'Designer Cupcakes' and its the name of the TV show about 'Georgetown Cupcake' and its owners, two sisters who quit their jobs to follow their passion to make cupcakes. The signature cupcake here is the Classic Red Velvet with vanilla cream cheese frosting topped with a red fondant heart. I also loved Toffee crunch which was delicious, but was disappointed by their Chocolate Ganache cupacke which was heavy and tasted more like a cake than a cupcake. The best thing about this place is that they use the best ingredients which is why their cupcakes are packed with flavor... love them. A good cupatea! and a cupcake to go with it, can really make my day yummylicious. The only other thing that comes close is Frozen Yogurt... hmmm maybe my next blog post should be about that!
