our friend C made her first solo foray into new york city yesterday (woohoo!) and came back with a box of cupcakes from the magnolia bakery at grand central terminal. these cupcakes are quite popular and have been name-dropped on shows such as “sex and the city.” in fact, the first time i heard of the store was in a primetime TV series called “dirty sexy money.” one of the characters complained about the long lines just to buy a cupcake.
i got to say, they’re good cupcakes 🙂 the actual cakes are nice and moist. but it’s the frosting that really sells these treats; very creamy and not too sugary. the one i had last night, the truffle cupcake, was quite decadent. it was made of devil’s food cake with chocolate ganache. and when i bit into it, i got a nice surprise — white chocolate filling.
