More cupcakes (and some banana pudding)!
As has become our tradition, we visited a new bakery this Sunday after church. Several months ago we had visited the original location of the famous Magnolia Bakery and were actually not that impressed. It is SUCH a tiny, tiny place that you can hardly even see the cupcakes, much less grab them from the self-service shelf and then crowd into line to pay...and due to the size, of course there is no type of seating provided...we wolfed down our cupcakes standing on the corner in the cold. Not exactly a relaxing outing. SO, I was very excited to learn that Magnolia recently opened another location on the West Side, which we of course needed to inspect. My friend, Sam, met up with us. The location is definitely much better with a few tables to sit or stand at and a much roomier area to view all the potential delicious items. Having heard that their banana pudding is not to be missed, we ordered a serving of this and a couple cupcakes. While the cupcake are really just OK, the banana pudding was fabulous! YUM!
