I have been to Magnolia a few times, because I always think I should give it another chance because of all the fuss that everyone makes. The cupcakes are not good. One day my mother and I got one red velvet cupcake and one vanilla. They had no flavor and tasted exactly the same, they were dry and the frosting was gritty. I will say though that the cocount layer cake is amazing and that is the only reason I will ever go back.

$2.75-3.25 for each cupcake? Get outta here!!! But hey, I bought some. The chocolate on chocolate was delicious and not too sweet. The orange cupcake with meringue frosting was ok. Red velvet - blah! Overall, waaaay overpriced! Cupcakes should cost $1.50-2.00 each. Flourless chocolate cake for $3.00 was more worth it.

I love their icing. But after eating 2 cupcakes back to back, I gotta say, they a little to sweet. However, the texture is very creamy and smooth. The actual cake part though, was a little dry the last time I went. I do suggest getting their apple cider to go with a cupcake though- if balanced the sweetness out. And the place itself smells wonderful!

This is all hype and is a perfect example of how everyone follows the crowd in NYC. Completely over priced.

I have to say that their magic cookie bars are to die for. The lines tend to be very long but they have many employees and the line goes by pretty quickly. If you are ever around try their magic cookie bar or their banana pudding.

I think the bakery offers amazing cakes, but the staff there do not have a clue how to handle customers or how to create order in the queues. The service is horrendous!!! Staff rather evidently choose to chat amongst themselves in the back rather than help in cutting down the lines!!Don't get me wrong, the food is amazing and I would go back again, just not to this branch.

I'm actually a huge fan of magnolia cupcakes and prefer this location to the tiny greenwich village spot. Tonight I went in for my usual cupcake and was surprised to see that the cupcakes and brownies were much smaller than usual and if I'm not mistaken, the icing tasted different too - thinner and less sugary. Hopefully just a bad night and not a new trend.
