this would be a great job, don't ya think?? taken at the Grand Central Magnolia Bakery
I am loving this idea!! I really like the hours as they are open really early and really late. Bloomingdales is one of my favorite New York stores as I remember going with my aunt and just being so in awe of the place. It is really like no other store in the world !!
I am not surprised however since the Los Angeles based "Sprinkles" is opening May 13th on Lexington Avenue between 60 and 61st Streets ...near Bloomingdales !! It should be very interesting to see what kind of "cupcake war" this turns out to be......I know I will be trying Sprinkles when I am in the city the middle of May .....only time will tell !!
