Snack Attack: Magnolia Bakery Opens in Los Angeles

Angelenos to mack on some cupcakes

One of the most fabled cupcakeries out there is finally setting up shop in Los Angeles.

Magnolia Bakery, a cornerstone for New York celebrities and tourists looking for a frosting fix, is opening a new store Saturday in West Hollywood at the corner of Third Street and Orlando Avenue.

We'll give you a moment to fantasize about an order of pastel buttercream cupcakes.


Magnolia currently has four locations in NYC, one in Dubai, and of course, a special place in pop culture (see: here and here).

Plus, for Angelenos with no patience (read: all of us), curbside pick-up will eventually be available by calling 323-951-0636.

Sprinkles, arguably the current champion of cupcakes in Los Angeles, is planning to return fire in the cupcakes wars, with a New York location scheduled to open in February 2011.
