Magnolia Bakery

We were riding our bikes back home from Socarrat and noticed that there was no line at Magnolia Bakery.

So we figured we might as well see what all the fuss was about.

It was ridiculously disorganized. There were signs saying where you should order and where you should pay, but the people working there didn't really seem to be taking orders. We asked one person where to take orders and she pointed to the counter. When we asked the counter person, she pointed to a table of cupcakes. I guess it's self serve? Fine with me. There were also something like 8 people working up front, but I couldn't figure out what half of them were doing.

Anyway, the price of the cupcakes seemed about right. We ate at a park across the corner from the bakery.

The cupcakes were tasty. I got just plain vanilla and Mabel got red velvet. The red velvet was pretty intensely red.

This bird preferred my vanilla cupcake.

I think it's evolutionarily programed to consider anything red to be poisonous.

It was really going at it.

I'm surprised that my phone had video.

Anyway, it's as satisfying as a cupcake should be which is pretty gosh darn satisfying. I liked how they did the frosting on top. We plan to drop in whenever there's no line.
