  • best cupcakes ever!

    The cupcakes in Magnolia have just the right amount of frosting and it's never too sweet unlike some other dessert joints in nyc. I like to stop by after work and get a box of cupcakes once in a while to share with my neighbors.

  • WTF?

    WTF happened to this place. Granted I was unimpressed the first time I visited Magnolia, but something has definitely happened to the quality of what they define as ""cupcakes"" at this place. My friend brought me some red velvet cupcakes and I am convinced that they were no more than some basic cake batter mix with food coloring and butter cream frosting. ""Butter Cream!!!"" Someone please send them a recipe, or for you folks at the bakery, if you run out of true ingredients, don't try to pass them of as red velvet. Those of us who have had good ones before know what to expect. Magnolia is riding on reputation and that ride is bumpy, slowing down, and heading for a cliff. I say good riddance! Your distain for your customers is sure to be reciprocated.

  • SOOOOO over-rated!

    DRY cupcakes and sickeningly sweet frosting. Try Alice's, Billy's or a piece of cardboard. All are better than these overrated cupcakes. And staff has a little attitude problem to boot. No thanks!

  • Frosting Too Sweet, Dry Cake

    The frosting is so sweet, I scraped mine off my cupcake. Cake itself was pretty dry. Not impressed even a little bit!

    This was a total disappointment! My friends and I were in the West Village and decided to stop by and try the famous cupcakes. So glad we didn't make a special trip out here. There was very little selection (only 3 or 4 different types when I was there) and although they weren't horrible, there was absolutely nothing special about Magnolia Cupcakes. Definitely not worth the trip or the $2.75 per cupcake.

    WORST CUPCAKES I'VE EVER HAD!!! I was visiting NYC and so excited to try the cupcakes at Magnolia. Bought 3 dozen to take home with me to share with friends and family. Got in the taxi, opened box, tasted one and almost spit it out. DRY, DRY, DRY and tasteless. Also, staff was rude and snooty. Such a disappointment.

  • SO disappointed!!

    Been trying to get to Magnolia for months...finally went today and it was such a let down....the cupcakes were dry, DRY I tell you. The frosting on the red velvet was nice b/c it wasn't your traditional cream cheese frosting, and the cake itself was a gorgeous red, but it was not moist at all. Also tried the pistachio, and chocolate and both were very dry. So bummed- my fave is still Sprinkle's in LA, and I hear it's coming to NY so look out for that! Butter Lane's was good, Buttercup was dry, and Crumb's was decent.....! Haven't got to Bill's or Amy's yet- how are they??\r

    These are a bit expensive, but they are GOOD. This is a nice afternoon treat after exploring the Village.
