BEHIND THE SCENES AT MAGNOLIA BAKERY


the ladies i've met living in the city have all been bonkers, let me say that up front. one of the girls in our moms group had the idea to call up the magnolia bakery on the upper west side to see if they do bakery tours for kids. turns out, they do. and they're free! and then you get a cupcake at the end too, so, bonkers.

after many emails back and forth we were able to agree on a date and time. we made it out there the week before last. (we had so many in attendance we had to split up into two tour groups.) and i just want you to know . . . magnolia has a sprinkle closet. like, an entire closet for just sprinkles. pretty great.


demonstrating how to get that perfect magnolia frosting swirl. she did it for us four times and i still don't understand it.


frosting in a tub, yo.

thank you magnolia for the tour! 
(you should definitely call up your local bakeries to see if they offer tours as well. it was so neat.)

  10. My sister works at Magnolia! I wake up to a new cupcake or banana pudding every morning. Oh, and our freezer is perpetually stuffed full of the left over cookies. It's starting to get dangerous..

  13. oh my goodness gracious.
    frosting in a tub. i'm speechless.

    so i'm guessing "bonkers" is a good thing? is that a ny term?
    it has to be good if it gets your cupcakes, right?
