So wait these are supposed to be good?
Now for those who don't know I've got a sweet tooth, maybe not just a sweet tooth but an insatiable lust for all candies and baked goods! Besides this too I love food, and NYC has some of the best restaurants and bakeries in the world. So a few years ago a dear friend and at the time my boss introduced me to the wonderful world of cupcakes at Billy's Bakery. Ever since then I've developed a love and have even coveted the bakeries the recipe and improved on it (Believe me mine are even better) Since then i've tried all the cupcake bakeries manhattan with the exception of a few still. So this week I had magnolia's cupcakes...
Now for those who don't know this is the "It" bakery for cupcakes and I have the baking book and from what i've tried so far has been good. Well I finally tried there regular cupcakes, and honestly if people are lining up for these cupcakes then there's something wrong, because they SUCK!!!! I think Magnolia's has the worst cupcake that I have yet to taste from the cupcakeries. No why do I say this? Well there Vanilla was dry and lacking vanilla and the frosting was all sugar, I assure you it will give you diabetes! The chocolate tasted fake almost like one of those damn hostess cakes. My bf had the red velvet which I've made before and these weren't eveen close to as good as the ones I made.
So here's what's gonna happen if this is what is considered good baking. Im going to open my own damn bakery and stomp the competition because the people have the right to line up around the block for something that is actually good!
On a side note if you live in NYC and want good cupcakes go to crumbs, Billy's bakery isn't what it used to be!
