Magnolia Bakery | August 23, 2008

The rumors are true…Magnolia cupcakes are the best. And yes, these are THE cupcakes Carrie and Miranda devoured in Sex and the City! The one pictured above is the chocolate buttermilk cupcake with vanilla icing and sprinkles I had during the Sex and the City tour in NYC. Here are the other flavors they make:

Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes or Vanilla Cupcakes – with your choice of chocolate or vanilla icing. (Vanilla icing is available in white or a variety of pastel colors.)
Red Velvet Cupcakes – with our traditional whipped vanilla icing.
Pumpkin Cupcakes – with a maple cream cheese icing and topped with toasted pecans.
Coconut Cupcakes – with a generous amount of meringue icing and topped with coconut.
Hummingbird Cupcakes – with a cream cheese icing and topped with toasted pecans.
German Chocolate – with our coconut-caramel-pecan icing.
Devil’s Food Cupcakes – with your choice of mocha, caramel cream cheese or just good old fashioned cream cheese icing topped with or without coconut.

Plan to wait in line for these gems. It’s a total tourist spot and only kind left were the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes when we got there. Pick up a few and eat them on the park benches nearby and if you want to visit the Sex and the City landmark without taking the tour, this area is the perfect place because the bookstore where Miranda was browsing autobiographies is right across the street!
