Magnolia Bakery forced to close

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

The New York City Department of Health shut down the famed Magnolia Bakery in the West Village Wednesday.

The health department told the bakery it needs a hand sink in the area where it makes those delicious cupcakes made famous in "Sex and the City" and a "Saturday Night Live" video.

According to a bakery spokesman, the bakery was also cited for a missing door handle, a missing light cover, and several mouse droppings and fruit flies in its garbage area.

The bakery says it intends to fix all the problems by this evening and try to reopen Thursday morning.
