One day, seemingly out of nowhere, cupcakes became the rage. I'm not exactly sure how it happened, but the Magnolia Bakery seemed to be there at the very beginning. They were mentioned in "S*x and the City," which chronicled the good (and very expensive) life in Manhattan. It's far from my life. I don't buy shoes at six hundred dollars a pair, but from time to time I do treat myself to a cupcake.
There are several branches of Magnolia Bakery and they all seem to be very busy all the time, which deters my desire for designer cupcakes. But the Sunday after Thanksgiving there was a window in time when there were not only no lines to buy a cupcake (!), but there was space to take pictures. I was going to visit a friend and realized that this would be the perfect sweet treat to bring as a gift.

The cupcakes were delicious. I bought no-frosting sugar dusted and we liked them a lot. In fact, we liked them so well I promised to bring them for dessert for our Bible Study New Year's Eve get together.
It's a sweet place for a cupcake stop!
Tomorrow we visit another spot for a treat. The clue is frozen custard.
Wishes for a wonderful Wednesday!
