The Big Apple Craze

The famous New York City cupcakes and delectable delights now invade Doha!

Magnolia bakery is credited with starting a 1990’s “cupcake craze” with its signature pastel-colored buttercream-frosted versions. But do note that the bakery is not only known for its cupcakes. They also offer cakes, banana pudding, muffins, pies, cookies, brownies, bars and icebox desserts. All are freshly baked from scratch!

Magnolia Bakery was featured on Sex and the City when Carrie and Miranda devoured those pink frosted cupcakes. Also on other shows such as Saturday Night Live, Spin City, Veronica Mars, the movie The Devil wears Prada and Prime.

I personally found out about Magnolia Bakery during my visit in Dubai, June 2011. It was their first non-U.S. store opened in 2010. My friend highly recommended that I should not go back to Doha without bringing some. And she was definitely right! I became a fan since!
