To celebrate the release of Downton Abbey, a film based on the popular television series, Magnolia Bakery has released a special cupcake in its honor.
In partnership with Focus Features, a production company behind the film’s release, the bakery chain has created a new Earl Grey cupcake. The cake and buttercream are both made with loose-leaf Earl Grey tea, giving each bite an Earl Grey bergamot flavor.
The flavor was inspired by Britain's tea-drinking culture and Magnolia created the new flavor with both that and the film in mind. According to the bakery, it has been a big hit with customers so far.
The Earl Grey cupcake will be available all throughout September at Magnolia Bakery’s stores in New York City, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. Each cupcake costs $4.25.
