Carrie Bradshaw's favorite New York Bakery has finally landed in the City of Angeles.. whoo hoo!!
Flashback!!... My first encounter with Magnolia Bakery in the West village. It's was eight years ago..hot as hell and I was in New york for a two week visit, which quickly turned into a month. The line: out the door. The Frosting: mile high chocolate. The Cupcake: vanilla.
That was then...THIS IS NOW..
LA has once again been blessed! This bright, fun, vintage styled bakery is twice the size as it's New York twin and permanently parked on one of the best streets in LA!
I met owner Steve Abrams about two weeks ago as I stumbled into the still under construction store front hoping to prematurely snag the Key lime cheesecake that I had been lusting after since last Decembers trip to NYC. Instead I snagged an invite to the private opening soirée... And of course I brought the two besties with!!
Now for those who are not familiar with Magnolia...This little sugar shop is not for the faint of heart! So all you Sugar Soldiers unite. Bring your steel, and by that I mean forks people because it's sweet and it's addictive..in a great way!
Here are a few words to help you understand where I am coming from:
Key lime Cheesecake. Pumpkin Pecan w/Ginger Snap Crust. Truffled Chocolate Cupcake. Peppermint Icebox Cake. Banana Cream Pie. Peanut Butter Toffee Bar. Lemon Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies w/Iced Molasses. Whoopie Cookies. Apple Crumb Pie. Coconut Cake. Lemon Squares....
GET IT? GOOD!! NUFF SAID! :)
Magnolia Officially opens today at noon... Soooo ..Put the computer down and get over there..because if you think the line at Sprinkles is long....
