After months of anticipation (and some revelatory chatter about the business of parking) New York's Magnolia Bakery is ready to open its doors today here in Los Angeles.

It's widely accepted that Magnolia started the international cupcake craze, thanks to pop culturally iconic cameos in Sex and the City and SNL's "Lazy Sunday." Their cupcakes are amazing--but before you queue the eye roll and bemoan the continued popularity of a persistent food trend, know that the sign outside says "Bakery" and that means there are a world of goodies inside for you to explore.
