Yum it’s a been a sheer delight to visit the newly opened Magnolia Bakery at THE WALK, JBR. It’s one of those unlocked hours where you don’t count calories but the pleasure is to enjoy the bite one after the other. It’s their third store in Dubai and this bakery comes all the way from USA to treat us their signature cup cakes, puddings and more.
This store is located in a tricky corner where it’s not easily noticed. Should find this one behind MotherCare. The moment I got in and saw their different types of cupcakes stretched on their counter(different colors, flavours, toppings, cakes) you have such a tough time to decide which ones to pick. So here’s a few of those speciality cup cakes we picked.
All of them were really nice and had it’s unique combinations and taste. The red velvet cup cake easily finished but I’d say my favourite was their chocolate cup cake with meringue buttercream. Out of their cakes I enjoyed their dark chocolate cake as it was really rich in chocolate. The maple cream cheese icing was my favourite icing ;). Their classic cup cake is Dhs 13 and speciality cup cake is Dhs 15.
You can present their beautiful cupcake in a lovely packing by putting it in their favor box(Dhs 4 additional), and now that single piece looks even more special in that elegant favor box which can say a 1000 words to that someone special 😉 They can also customize the cake for you for dhs 4 by adding an image on the cupcake like how you see above (how they’ve done my blog name on it). The box you see above with 2 cupcakes in it is complimentary(you don’t have to pay anything extra for the plain white box packing), it’s only if you want the favor designer boxes that comes with a ribbon.
The banana pudding is my favourite at Magnolia Bakery. If you are visiting in here then you better not miss this one. Too good that you just can’t stop poking it. They also have them in different sized packing for Dhs 15, 25 and 35. The Banana cream pie below had a similar taste to the banana pudding but the server was telling me that inner content is not the same as banana pudding although I couldn’t really taste anything different in particular.
They do have a dinner and lunch menu which I doubt if anyone notices. Probably they need to put some bigger posters of their meals as the sugar dominate this bakery in a big way. We did try their pasta and sandwiches and I was very impressed with their Turkey and Brie sandwich. Fresh bread, green apples and that special cheese in it makes this sandwich WOW. The portion size was impressive and it would be difficult for one person to complete it. Their homemade lemonade was just lime and water so no real magnolia magic in here.
They have different types of cheese cake and we went after the regular blueberry cheesecake. The berries on top surely rock and the cheese cake tastes more natural but not my type though. I wish I tried some of their other cheesecakes like the chocolate or red velvet cheesecake 🙁 Their cookies were soft and the chocolate chunk cookie is my pick here. Over all I am happy with the quality they have to offer. I am just not sure if I can afford them all the time 🙁 . Click pictures below to view them in full screen view.
