1. Magnolia Bakery 401 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014

What started out as a tiny West Village cupcake shop has since expanded across the world (it has a location in Hawaii). Magnolia's frosting-laden cupcakes are definitely worth the hype, but it's the tubs of banana pudding, thick layer cakes, oversized muffins, and dense cheesecakes that make this bakery such a destination. The West Village location, which opened in 1996, is also the best spot to catch a glimpse of the expert cake decorators icing cupcakes in the window.
