We did visit New York with the intention of doing some fairly touristy things. But of all the touristy things that we did, this was an accident. That’s the bonus of New York being such a walkable city.
We crossed the road to god knows where and ended up, along with a pushy film crew not ours obv., on the doorstep of the Magnolia Bakery. Luckily my sweet stomach* always has room, so we grabbed some cupcakes, a red velvet cheesecake and a brownie to eat.
The film crew, it would have been nice if they’d closed the shop while they were working, so we didn’t get elbowed out of the way.
The lovely cupcakes still in their box.
A look inside.
Yummy, although a teeny bit on the dry side the flavour made up for that. A combination of bitter chocolate and very sweet meringue made these huge cupcakes bliss to eat. I put the red velvet cheesecake away to eat later**, partly because the cup cake was huge and partly because I had spotted the Lego store and needed to go check it out.
*I have a long standing theory that there are two stomachs one for sweets and the other for savory, which explains why I always have room for desert even if I can’t finish dinner.
**Unfortunately I forgot to put it in the mini fridge at the hotel, so I didn’t actually get to eat it. I’m fairly sure that the mouse who ate through the box to get to it enjoyed it though.
