Magnolia's original location at 401 Bleecker St. has been gutted for renovations. No worries though, you can still get their cupcakes at two of their other locations.

In other Magnolia's related news, the original owner Allysa Torey gave an interview where she talks about living a quieter life on a farm in upstate New York with her adopted baby.

Current owner Steve Abrams is expanding the bakery, opening its first location outside of the US, in Dubai. The store will be managed and operated by Al Tayer Insignia, in Bloomingdale's Home store, in The Dubai Mall, and is slated to open February 2010.

Magnolia's is also planning on opening two new locations in the US, one in Grand Central Terminal in January and their first location on the West Coast in Spring of 2010.
