WTF happened to this place. Granted I was unimpressed the first time I visited Magnolia, but something has definitely happened to the quality of what they define as ""cupcakes"" at this place. My friend brought me some red velvet cupcakes and I am convinced that they were no more than some basic cake batter mix with food coloring and butter cream frosting. ""Butter Cream!!!"" Someone please send them a recipe, or for you folks at the bakery, if you run out of true ingredients, don't try to pass them of as red velvet. Those of us who have had good ones before know what to expect. Magnolia is riding on reputation and that ride is bumpy, slowing down, and heading for a cliff. I say good riddance! Your distain for your customers is sure to be reciprocated.

This was a total disappointment! My friends and I were in the West Village and decided to stop by and try the famous cupcakes. So glad we didn't make a special trip out here. There was very little selection (only 3 or 4 different types when I was there) and although they weren't horrible, there was absolutely nothing special about Magnolia Cupcakes. Definitely not worth the trip or the $2.75 per cupcake.

WORST CUPCAKES I'VE EVER HAD!!! I was visiting NYC and so excited to try the cupcakes at Magnolia. Bought 3 dozen to take home with me to share with friends and family. Got in the taxi, opened box, tasted one and almost spit it out. DRY, DRY, DRY and tasteless. Also, staff was rude and snooty. Such a disappointment.

Been trying to get to Magnolia for months...finally went today and it was such a let down....the cupcakes were dry, DRY I tell you. The frosting on the red velvet was nice b/c it wasn't your traditional cream cheese frosting, and the cake itself was a gorgeous red, but it was not moist at all. Also tried the pistachio, and chocolate and both were very dry. So bummed- my fave is still Sprinkle's in LA, and I hear it's coming to NY so look out for that! Butter Lane's was good, Buttercup was dry, and Crumb's was decent.....! Haven't got to Bill's or Amy's yet- how are they??
