Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?
Have you ever had a cupcake from the famous Magnolia Bakery? No? Well you are seriously missing out. The Magnolia Bakery (which originated in New York but now has four locations including a spot closer to Phoenix -- in Los Angeles) makes one of the best cupcakes we have ever had the pleasure of sinking our teeth into. Their cupcakes are so insanely good that it makes all other cupcakes taste like bland frosted bread. Okay, maybe that's taking things a little too far, but if you're a sweets lover you must try one of these little cakes.
And starting January 2nd you won't have to take a vacation to snag one -- The Magnolia Bakery will start delivering their cupcakes nationwide (unless you live in Alaska or Hawaii, then you're outta luck).
A six pack of their heavenly Vanilla Vanilla cupcakes will set you back $18 plus shipping which works out to roughly $3 and some change per cupcake; Cheaper then that other cupcake store with the red dots on their overrated cakes. And if you or someone you know is a die hard cupcake fan, you can sign up for their Cupcake Club. For a (rather outrageous) price, you can have one dozen of that months feature cupcake sent to your house. You'll also receive their cookbook, a cupcake tin, a Magnolia tote bag, and a $25 gift card.

to pre-order your cupcakes or for more details on the joining the club.
Make Your Own Magnolia Cupcakes
Once we found Magnolia's Vanilla Vanilla cupcake recipe
, there was no going back. We have used this recipe time and time again and have only had the best of results. The best thing about this recipe is that you can jazz it up however you see fit, although we are quite partial to the tasty cakes just how they are.
