A New York Visit
A few weeks ago I headed to NYC for the Toy Show. The trip was filled with a lot of work walking down aisle after aisle of the latest toys and games which was a lot of fun. But also while in the city I got a chance to do a little site seeing, window shopping and of course a few stops at some fabulous bakeries. Here’s a look into the sites I stopped at and spotted while in NYC.
While walking the streets we walked by Henri Bendel and one look at their fabulous window I fell in love! Even from across the street…I was in love! And it just so happens this was the day before Valentine’s Day. Isn’t the window fabulous??
As me and one of my fabulous co-workers walked the streets we made it to Columbus Circle.
Which lead us to Bouchon Bakery which was recommended to me by some of my foodie friends and it was worth the visit but I was sad that they didn’t have any macaronsleft. But we did try their muffins, chocolate bouchon, hot chocolate, and drooled over everything else. If your ever in Columbus Circle stop inside the Time Warner buildingso you can try some of Bouchon’s fabulous treats. The good thing is they are opening a Rockefeller location soon.
Another bakery stop was Magnolia Bakery. The place was so busy for a cold Tuesday afternoon. My co-worker and I braved the cold and walked several blocks for this stop….
And walking inside and smelling the sweet aroma of all things sweet made it worth it. My coworker tried the German Chocolate Cupcake and Red Velvet and she loved the German Chocolate. She actually shared a bite of the Red Velvet and I have to say I wasn’t a big fan. I’m all about a traditional cream cheese frosting on a red velvet cupcake and this cupcake had a vanilla frosting. I tried the flourless chocolate cake due to my new diet changes. The few bites I had were delicious.
Everything was delicious even the adorable t-shirts and aprons!!
Even down to these super yummy cheesecakes. Which my co-worker took the pumpkin cheesecake with a ginger snap crust in a to-go baggie. Which makes me realize I need to ask her tomorrow if she ever tried it?! Looked fabulous!!
I highly recommend a stop at Magnolia Bakery!
So here is a glimpse inside my trip to NYC. I love the city! I love it’s action and feeling, but I have to say I enjoyed returning home to 80 degree weather. It was a bit cold on our last day! Hope enjoyed a glimpse into my visit.
