Are you a cupcake or sweet fanatic like me? I know sugar is bad for me, but I really like it. You too? Great! we can be good friends:-) I had cupcakes at the original Magnolia Bakery in New York and fell in love, so I couldn't wait to try the Los Angeles location. My expectations were pretty high since I had already experienced the original location in Manhattan.
My son and I celebrated Valentines Day by having some treats at Magnolia Bakery and as much as I wanted to love the cupcakes I didn't. They were just ok to me, but you know what I would go back for?
The banana pudding.
Just so you understand, I don't like bananas. They might find their way into my mouth through a smoothie or in banana bread or muffins, but you will never see me peel a banana and eat it. But this banana pudding was light, fluffy and delicious. I just might learn to like bananas after eating this.
My son makes every day amazing! So fun to celebrate Valentines Day with him:-)
Ready to sink my teeth into some chocolate
This did satisfy my chocolate fix, but you could put chocolate on a pencil and I would probably eat it
little fingers about to dip into frosting
My little guy is pretty excited about his cupcake
He is even more thrilled with his ring
Okay, so the cupcakes didn't do it for me, but look at all this other stuff
How you doin?
Lots of cakes to choose from and most are also sold by the slice
It is pretty cute in here
So much to choose from
Yes, I know they look good...
full of smiles. I love it!
We got these cute cupcakes. Mini me is not crazy about chocolate. Imagine that...
When you come to Magnolia Bakery, put your money on the Banana pudding
A brief moment of silence
This stuff right here
Doesn't this look good?
And of course I had to bring some home where I could be a pig in private. I'm funny that way
Great spot to have a cup of coffee and a a sweet treat and very kid friendly. Parking can be a challenge, but there are plenty of meters and street parking if you don't mind a short walk and after eating all those treats, you will probably need to walk:-)
