This is it, folks — the one that started it all. Magnolia Bakery is often credited with kicking off the cupcake craze way back when, thanks to a Sex in the City reference. Magnolia's iconic cupcakes are frosted in their classic pastel color palette and decorated with hand-colored sprinkles, making them instantly recognizable in a crowd. The Daily Meal questions the wisdom of offering a red velvet cake without cream cheese frosting (though it is an option if you request it), and advises you to go for the Hummingbird instead a banana, pineapple and pecan cake with sweet cream cheese icing, topped with toasted pecans. — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012
