Yes, I did... I had to have a cupcake for breakfast and it was Red Velvet. I was really tasty even though it was not the cream cheese frosting but delicious velvety (no pun intended) buttercream.
Sorry the images are not great but they were not happy with me taking pictures without permission and on top of that the battery on my camera was dying... I think that means I have to go back for another one.
I've liked cupcakes way before all the different boutiques started to appear all over the place. I like the fact that they are personal portions of cake and some of them have the right amount of frosting. I have to admit I like them to be simple without much stuff because if they do after three bites you are sort of done with it... don't you think?
At Magnolia there is a 12 cupcake per customer policy due to the high popularity of the cupcakes and in times when there is a lot of traffic I've seen they even have a sort of bouncer making sure that people behave in the line or don't take more cupcakes than they should... that is a good indicator the product you're buying is good!
Have a sweet day and enjoy!
Oh, I just realized I haven't eaten and my sweet tooth is nagging at me. Would you believe I have never tried red velvet cake? xoReplyDelete
Yay! You didn't see me in my Magnolia shirt, did you? Cutest shirt ever! I love cupcakes- really, how did something ever get so cute?ReplyDelete
goodness, I wish I was there!ReplyDelete
I had the red velvet when I was there.. To die for! :)ReplyDelete
My family began baking red velvet cakes back in the 60's for family birthdays. The butter cream frosting is what we always used so as you can imagine I am drooling all over my keyboard. My cheerio's just don't do it for me!! Thanks for the dreamy distraction and have a lovely Thursday. ~ debReplyDelete
Mmm, cupcakes! I just blogged about these little sweets yesterday! Nothing beats a cupcake!ReplyDelete
I love cupcakes, too! But I don't like too much stuff on top, either. I don't really like very sweet things, they make me feel sick after a while. Just a little bit of whipped cream and a cupcake for me.ReplyDelete
I like their red velvet, and Buttershop's vanilla best! Yum! Welcome to NY!ReplyDelete
i do love their red velvet cupcakes and they have a store in grand central and its inspiration is really good, too!ReplyDelete
they should let you take pics because its advertising, duh! you should tell them you blog then work out a discount for your readers and yourself - bonus - more cupcakes!ReplyDelete
Nothing like a cupcake for breakfast, eh? I love that they have a cupcake limit -- it's hysterical. I'm so happy to see you're having some bakery fun in NYC.ReplyDelete
