Hubby had to go to Jersey for business a month ago and wandered into NYC for the night. God love him, he didn’t bring us home Hard Rock Cafe Tshirts, nor mini figurines of the Statue of Libery…he brought us cupcakes. From two famous eateries in New York City that I’ve only dreamed of visiting. This one I’m reviewing is Magnolia Bakery. Now that is a good man.
This store that had its humble beginnings as an old-fashioned coffee and bake shop in Greenwich Village has now expanded its number to eight.
My hubs brought back vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and chocolate buttercream. They were about $3 each, a steal. This cake was moist yet dense and had just the right hint of vanilla bean. The buttercream was purely sinful, made with real butter and just enough cocoa to make it chocolatey but not too much so. I gave the vanilla on vanilla to my mom and sister and they declared it delectable as well. Next time we visit NYC, I’m going to go out on a limb with some of their Specialty flavors!
