In a little corner in Greenwich village, there is a cute and famous cupcake shop called Magnolia Bakery:
It's so quaint here!
Self-serve cupcakes! I spent a good 5 minutes staring them all down before deciding on two:
Red Velvet and Chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream
Red velvet cupcake - a classic mistake with red velvet is that sometimes people make it way too sweet. Magnolia definitely doesn't make that mistake because it was the perfect balance of sweetness and richness from the vanilla icing and the soft and slightly acidic taste of the red velvet cake. AMAZING!
The chocolate cupcake was great as well - they really make a fantastic icing here! MMMM...
Overall: Magnolia's cupcakes are melt-in-your-mouth amazing! They were moist and tasty *sigh*. They were soooooo good!
