Cute Cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery

You’ll find lots of wonderful baked goods at the Magnolia Bakery in New York City, but they are pretty famous for their cupcakes! 🙂  This well-known bakery opened in 1996 in Greenwich Village and, according to their website, “It was envisioned as a cozy, old-fashioned shop where people could come for coffee and something sweet. With its vintage American desserts and decor, customers often remark that walking into the Bakery is like taking a step back in time.”  They have about six locations now–none by where I live, unfortunately–so I admire their cupcakes from afar on their site (all photos shown in this post are from Their Vanilla Vanilla cupcake, “a buttery old-fashioned vanilla cupcake with a light crumb and vanilla buttercream,” is their most popular cupcake. I actually found the recipe for these on the web and made them this past Christmas–they were really good! In addition to their Vanilla Vanilla, other cupcakes included in Magnolia’s “classics” collection include these popular flavors…

  • Vanilla Chocolate (vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream)
  •  Chocolate Chocolate (cupcakes with a smooth velvety texture and dark chocolate flavor, chocolate buttercream and assorted sprinkles)
  • Chocolate Vanilla (chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream). 

You just can’t beat classic chocolate and vanilla–and they’re decorated so cute with the sprinkles and edible flowers on top!

Magnolia Bakery also has a Baker’s Choice Specialty Cupcake Assortment…

…which includes red velvet, lemon, caramel, hummingbird, pumpkin, and pistachio cupcakes–yum!

Here are some other ways they decorate cupcakes for various occasions like birthdays, baby showers, holidays, and other special “themed” events…

Magnolia Bakery has special Easter cupcakes and other treats featured on their site now, too…you’ll have to visit and check them out!

    Magnolia Bakery is one of my favorite places in NY. I miss it living in Seattle, but when I visit my daughter, it’s always on my list to go to!

      I just have a very basic decorating set that has a couple of very basic tips, so that’s what I use–I’m definitely not an expert at cupcake decorating, but I hope to be able to do a little more with it when I have more time!
