My lovely friend Di is in NYC as we speak, hrumph, am extremely jealous…..I can smell the Magnolia Bakery from here….she has, of course, sent me the inevitable top of the rockerfeller photo, text me several (hundred) times telling me what cocktail she is drinking, what food she is eating, what cakes she has spied (hrumph, even more jealous…..)!
However, happy with my lot (well, ok, Edinburgh vs NYC?! on a sunny day like today Edinburgh rules!) I’m perched on a stool in my kitchen posting this blog and dreaming what I can rustle up for tea (a trip to Manna Bakery earlier today was inspiration enough, bring on the baking!). Despite being in DIY hell….(Mr Predictable is currently destroying the living room with a chain saw…..mmmm)…I’m still thinking about food…some things never change!
Talk about Pavlov’s dog…I’m dribbling just looking at these little beauties! A friend of mine was in NYC last week and I asked her to par-take in a few Magnolia Bakery cupcakes and take some photos (all for the sake of baking journalism you understand)…she didn’t fail her mission and here are the results. Unfortunately she ‘forgot’ to bring some back for me…some friend that is bloggers!
Two little things of beauty!
Just in case I was in any doubt she didn’t manage to eat the lot she was kind enough to take these photos too…you go girl!
Marvellous Magnolia, I’m coming to visit you soon
Calling all cupcake/SATC fans…a dream come true…cupcakes from THE magnolia bakery in NYC…they bake all night and we joined the queue on Bleecker Street at 11pm, fact cupcakes fans….yes, they really do queue all night long for these mouthfuls of cupcake joy…needless to say they were devoured in 10 seconds flat…well worth the wait! SJP would have been sooo proud…in fact, this trip to NYC resulted in a fair few cupcake feasts…the red velvets at Dean & Deluca are worth a mention too!
