For me, a trip to New York is just not complete without a visit to one of my favorite cupcakeries, Magnolia Bakery. So, imagine my surprise and delight when I received an email from Linda Facci, Magnolia's Creative Director, offering to give me a personal tour! I had the girls and my sister with me, so we all met Linda at the Columbus Avenue shop (there are actually four locations in and around NYC)...
It's a beautiful (and spacious!) shop filled with all of Magnolia's many goodies.
From their iconic pastel cupcakes...
....to their delicious home-made puddings (the banana is TDF!) and yummy cakes...
They even have a party room available! If I lived in New York, I would so be having the girls' next birthday parties there. :-)
It was so wonderful to have the opportunity to chat with Linda.
She is so sweet and talented and obviously loves what she does for a living. And what a job she has - I mean, who wouldn't want to be surrounded by sprinkles on a daily basis!
Thanks again, Linda - it was a such pleasure to meet you and tour the shop!
***In Such Pretty Things shop news, I wanted to let you all know that I am going to be working on a shop update this weekend. I have lots of beautiful new vintage finds to add to the shop. I will also be starting to add items to the Christmas shop. And this is just the beginning, as I will have lots more pastel prettiness to add as we move toward the holidays!
