Magnolia Bakery’s (in NYC) Vanilla Birthday Cake Cupcakes

There is the cutest little bakery on Bleecker St. in New York City. It’s called Magnolia Bakery and we discovered it several years ago during a trip there. (They also have several other locations in NYC, Chicago, LA, and even internationally.) We stood in the line which wound around the corner to order these amazing Vanilla Birthday Cake Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream icing. We loved them so much that we had them for breakfast every day we were there! Vacations are so much fun!!

They had so many yummy looking sweets, but we never did try anything else – just couldn’t get past those amazing cupcakes! 😉

I was so excited to find that they had a cookbook with many of their wonderful recipes – including the cupcakes and icing – so of course I bought it. And the sad thing is I still haven’t tried any of the other recipes after all these years! 😕 I need to be more adventurous…

I recently made these yummy cupcakes once again and discovered that the recipe can be found here on

Here they are fresh from the oven…and I highly recommend investing in one of these 24 count cupcake pans. You can find them at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and other craft stores in the baking section. They are around $20, but use a coupon and they are even more affordable!

With the Vanilla Buttercream Icing and red sugar sprinkles…


Oh my…just so good!!!

Make up a batch of these and I promise you won’t be disappointed!!!!!! 

Thanks for stopping by,
