Magnolia Bakery GCS

Himishgal Feb 25, 2010 08:18 AM

Can any hounds confirm if the new Magnolia bakery open in Grand Central Station (across and down a bit from Mendy's) is certified Kosher? If so, is it under the UKS - Rabbi Yaakov Spivak? TIA.

      I'd love to find out......so the question remains; who makes a better KOSHER cupcake?

        They are both certified kosher--all Crumbs, and the UWS Magnolia. Whether you value the rabbi's opinion is another matter.

          Crumbs is better. Magnolia is too rich. Crumbs also has more flavors.

            I agree on Crumbs although I can't finish one of their cupcakes on my own. I found Magnolia to be well...kinda dull. Just a lot of sugar and no flavor, not even a white cake with buttercream flavor.

      It is certified Kosher and by the UKS!
