Confetti Cake

Magnolia Bakery

What it is:A buttery, beloved vanilla cake, extra festive with confetti folded into each layer, then covered with buttercream and adorned with more confetti outside. This 3 layer, six inch cake serves 6 to 8 partygoers.

Why we love it: Magnolia Bakery has been an NYC institution since Jennifer Appel and Allysa Torey opened their doors in the West Village in 1996. Everyone talks about their banana pudding, but we're convinced the confetti cake is the actual star.
