Wooo! I'm jumping for joy!
Thanks to this post in Daily Candy about the famed NYC bakery Magnolia opening in Los Angeles today, hundreds of people dropped by the fresh corner shop in WeHo, only to learn that they don't open until tomorrow. Oops. That said the good people of Magnolia Bakery did not turn their new neighbors and eager fans away empty handed. In fact, the owner himself scooped free cups of the most swoon-worthy Banana Pudding I've ever tried.
It was so good I got a second one. Hee
The Banana Pudding wins the sparkling Golden Cherry award for which I will write a separate review, but for now, let me revel in the joy that is leaping around a brand new, fresh bakery before anyone else gets to!
My friend and blogger Ben from B-sideBlog joined up with me and we chatted with the owner a bit.
Turns out there's a terrible neighborhood scandal involving an old-lady mafia that tries to close down and prevent new businesses from opening in the area!!!! How awful and appalling! Check out Ben's fine reporting on the story here.
Ugh, on that note, WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD MAGNOLIA! We are so happy to have you join 3rd Street and wish all small business owners the very best in their endeavors!
and LA CUPCAKES YOU!
