Cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery, NYC New York

Magnolia Bakery is credited with starting the global cupcake craze. Magnolia Bakery now has several branches around the world from Tokyo to Moscow but it all started at this humble shop in West Village, New York City in 1996.

The first and original Magnolia Bakery still operates at this corner shop at the quiet junction of West 11 Street and Bleecker Street.

Inside the tiny Magnolia Bakery shop at Bleecker Street, it still looks homely despite the brand's global expansion. 

Infamous for it's queues and busloads of tourists, the wait wasn't long this chilly Friday morning - I got my cupcake within 5 minutes.

There are no eat-in facilities here. All of us had to take away our cupcakes in one of Magnolia Bakery's signature boxes.

The spongy cake was fluffy, soft, slightly moist and not overly sweet. The cheese frosting was sweet and light tasting.

I liked it.
