It has been on my list since I saw the Sex and the City episode “No Ifs, Ands or Butts” aired 18 years ago, in which Carrie confessed Miranda was having a crush on Aidan and they were both sitting on a bench outside this bakery eating cupcakes.
My spontaneous mini-tour included an official photo in front of Carrie’s apartment and the most unbelievable surprise even for myself. That day Sarah Jessica Parker was shooting a commercial for the brand Intimissimi in the same street and I had the chance to see her. I was in complete shock, it is not a secret that I’m a big fan of SATC.
Even my friend Greg James a.k.a @latajiadita couldn’t believe it. Earlier, before all this happened, I was joking that I’d see her one day. I wasn’t counting that my wish would come true just a few minutes later.
Back to the cupacake story….
It took me exactly 18 years to make my mini SATC tour that included a visit to Magnolia Bakery and order the famous “Carrie Cupcake” as they call it.
This cupcake tasted better than I expected. The frosting, the cupcake itself, so spongy and flavourful; everything was on point. Definitely the fluffiest cupcake so far. Cheers to that!
My trip to NYC was full of fun and good memories, new friends, colors and flavors that I’ll be sharing with you every Thursday to celebrate #TBT
