America's Best New Cupcakes

Slide 20 of 23

Magnolia Bakery, New York City

In 1996, Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker’s character on Sex in the City, took a bite of a pastel pink buttercream-frosted vanilla cupcake at this West Village bakery and changed cupcake history. Today the bakery has locations throughout the US and in Dubai and is working on international locations in Beirut, Kuwait, Doha, Abu Dhabi and Japan. The newest cupcake may be its most glamorous: The sparkling Swarovski Cupcake is available in vanilla or chocolate cake and is iced with shimmering vanilla buttercream and topped with an edible jewel. “The buttercream has a pleasant grittiness from confectioner’s sugar,” says F&W’s Tina Ujlaki. “You really get a feeling of the crystalized sugar texture.” magnoliabakery.com
