New York gets a new Magnolia Bakery this week

Last Thursday, I got an impromptu text message from the awesome Brownie of Blondie and Brownie, asking if I was at the party for the new Magnolia Bakery.

"The what?" Somehow, we were left off the list for this pre-launch party, but I met up with her and we sweet-talked (ha) our way into the newest, shop at the Northeast corner of 49th and 6th in Manhattan (Rockefeller Center). Blondie and Brownie have a full report, as does Eater.

They had a display of their pink ribbon breast cancer benefit cupcakes, and giveaways of cupcakes and their infamous banana pudding. I was off to catch a screening of Rachel Getting Married, but managed to say hello to folks who run Magnolia, walk off with a box of cupcakes, and peep the amazing new t-shirt design modeled by Chief Baking Officer Bobbie Lloyd. They'll be selling in the store (and later, online) in three different colors (if I remember correctly, brown, pink and white, but I could be wrong):

We're told that they are probably opening this Wednesday, October 8th, but we'll keep you posted. You can see the rest of my photos in this Flickr set.
