I know people always says Magnolia Bakery is overrated, too touristy, etc. And all of that is probably true, but I still enjoy it. First, I think their cupcakes are pretty solid. Second, I love the decor – all the pastels and charming little details.
While walking down State Street I discovered that – surprise! – there is now a Magnolia in Chicago. So, my parents were here last weekend, and we stopped by for an afternoon snack. I got my traditional red velvet, my mom got the peanut butter and jelly, and my dad got carrot cake (I think?). Mine was delicious.
And, in closing: I can never think of Magnolia without thinking of this. I love those cupcakes like McAdams loves Gosling. For real.
