Magnolia Bakery



Happy late Eid Mubarak everyone I hope that you and your family had a great holiday. We sure did and I hope to share more of it with you but as of now I still have major jet lag and a sore throat to go along with it. Have you all ever had any treats from Magnolia Bakery? So for what seems forever now I have heard people brag about Magnolia Bakery having the best cupcakes on earth and it was something that I had wanted to try for myself. Over the Eid holiday we happened to pass some treats inside Bloomingdales and Talal and I just had to get some. I wanted a pretty one decorated for Eid and the girl working there told me the chocolate with vanilla frosting was the best so that was the one I went with. Talal got a blonde Brownie and while we were paying I just happened to notice it was Magnolia Bakery and started getting a little excited from all of the hype I had heard.

You see all that white on the top of the cupcake? Well, that is ALL frosting. For some reason I did not think all of that would be frosting but for me that is an overkill. Yes, it tasted good but I can not stand that much sugar so I ended up scraping most of it off. The cupcake itself was very moist and yea it was good but nothing out of this world like I have read in the past. Georgetown Cupcakes still has everyone else beat in the cupcake world, trust me.

    I’m not really a fan of Magnolia’s here. They taste like they were made with dishwater lol. Did you try Hummingbird Bakery? Much better than Magnolia’s. Their red velvet cupcakes are sooo good.

      No, I did not know they had one where is it at? We are coming back for Eid. The cupcakes here in Saudi are the absolute worst. We have ALL kinds of cupcake places however every single one of them look and taste the exact same way. I think one place makes them and they just buy from there. All the frosting is just whipped cream yucky.

    It’s on the same levels as Magnolia’s and not too far actually. Like right across from Patchi chocolates in Dubai Mall.

    Totally agree, far too much frosting for me. I was so disappointed as I had heard so much about them from friends in NY who had raved about the place. I did the same thing as you on the few occasions I have had them – scrape of all the frosting.

      Yea too much frosting just ruins it for me. I mean it’s hard to enjoy a cake when you’re in a diabetic coma lol. By the way I need to email you.

    I am an icing/frosting girl.. and I can’t handle their frosting. :/ And you make a good point about Riyadhs cupcake places… The best I tried was at a birthday party.. and it was made by some lady in her home! I wish I had her info :/
