Frosting good, cake dry
We enjoyed the cupcakes here on our last visit, when you stood in line and picked them out from behind a glass case. Things have since changed. Now the public grabs their own cupcakes out of a corner window area, very disorganized, you can't tell what flavor you are getting, some cupcakes were tipped over and hands all over the place. Not very appetizing. We tried the vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, no where near the flavor of Sprinkles in Beverly Hills. Magnolia has dropped off our favorite cupcake list.

Basically you discovered what most here have been saying for years!
Next time try Two Little Red Hens, Chikalicious, Sugar Sweet Sunshine, or Butter Lane.

The self serve cupcake tray in the corner window was standard at Magnolia before the long lines. I can't imagine them managing that now.
You could try one of the other Magnolia locations if you still feel loyalty to them.
