If you’re not a self-proclaimed sweets lover, you just might be after you try some specials from this Mag Mile bakery. They bake fresh classic cakes and cupcake flavors like red velvet (you pick the frosting) and carrot, plus more interesting options like pistachio, peanut butter and jelly and monthly seasonal specials. Magnolia Bakery earned its spot on the Magnificent Mile for more than specialty cakes though. If cake isn’t your thing, they offer decadent backups like a banana pudding that customers rave about, pies, muffins, brownies, frozen pies and more. We don’t believe in any rules against desserts coming first.
