We stumbled on Magnolia Bakery after a trip to the Kangol shop... and what an amazing find..... I'd heard of Magnolia Bakery and have even contemplated buying their cookbook but to be honest we weren't seeking it out so it was a wonderful surprise.
The display was fabulous with lines of beautifully decorated cupcakes and celebration cakes either waiting to be sliced up for customers or waiting to be collected.
We had a strange mixture of food, I had granola and a lemon zest cupcake and my husband had a huge apple pie (eyes bigger than his belly as he couldn't eat it). Everything was scrummy, my lemon zest cake was super light and very lemony.....I'd definitely recommend these guys as a drop in place or to order cakes from for a party.
It was also lovely to be able to watch the cakes wing made and the amazing to see the how quickly they manage to ice a full sized celebration cake....
The only think I wouldn't recommend is the tea. I only had a small cup but the tea bag produced hardly any flavour. Sadly Starbucks do a better peppermint tea than Peets tea.
