I keep wondering what’s all about the Magnolia Bakery. Beyond the cute, farm girl, country-chic aesthetic that can be a refreshing change of pace from the usual New York City decor that leans sleek or industrial, I’m not really getting its popularity. I’ve tried their sheet cakes, cupcakes and now muffins, but none of them, while decent, don’t seem to grab me much. The Magnolia Bakery muffins this morning were dense, substantial and tasty in a homey way, but again, I probably won’t go out of my way to buy them again.
