Cititour Review: The minute you walk in you know you're at Magnolia's Bakery. The whiff of freshly made cakes greets you at the door, along with a lengthy line; two trademarks of its original location in the Village. It can be a risky move duplicating what has for years been a destination for fresh baked cakes, especially cupcakes. And Magnolia's for the most part pulls it off. The cupcakes, which we had to pack ourselves to speed things up, were light and airy. The chocolate ones are wickedly delicious. So is the triple layer coconut cake with marshmallow frosting. The flourless chocolate cake we tasted was simply decadent. So, if you are wondering if the new Magnolia's is as good as the old, I'd say it passes with flying colors and is a welcome addition to the Upper West Side.
