A well-known, cupcake-filled New York City bakery will bring a bit of its charm to Boston this fall. Making good on past promises of expansion to New England, Magnolia Bakery will open a stall at Faneuil Hall later this year, according to the Boston Globe.
Perhaps best known for its decadent cupcakes (made famous by frequent references in Sex and the City), Magnolia first opened in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1996. As a major cupcake craze ballooned in the early 2000s, the bakery expanded beyond the tri-state area to other major U.S. cities like Chicago and Los Angeles, before taking the brand international, as previously reported.
Now, Magnolia Bakery will become part of a classic spot in Boston: Its stall at 2-4 Faneuil Hall will stock those patented cupcakes, plus banana pudding, cakes, cheesecake, and more. A post on Craigslist calling for managers suggests the bakery could open this summer, while the Globe makes note of a planned fall opening. Either way, stay tuned for the revival of the cupcake craze.
