I've written about the over-saturation of cupcakes in New York City a number of times in the past (click here to read the kvetching). I've also written of the roots of this over-saturation stemming directly from Magnolia Bakery. I don't like to write about them too much because it was publicity (aka, Sex and the City)that messed up that bakery in the first place. That said, I feel obligated to report that today's Grub Street blog announces that Magnolia Cupcakes will soon be available for all, no matter where you live. As of January 2, Magnolia is willing to send their butter cream frosted treats to any U.S. address. (I wonder how they stay really fresh. Butter cream by nature does not travel easily). So if you want to know what all the fuss is about, go to the Magnolia Bakery homepage and order up a dozen.
