Magnolia Bakery opens in Chicago

''Sex and the City'' and ''The Devil Wears Prada'' helped make Magnolia Bakery one of New York's most famous bakeries.

Magnolia's delicious sweets no doubt have something to do with its fame as well, and now the bakery is opening shop right here in Chicago.

It's a sort of homecoming for Magnolia's chief baking officer Bobbie Lloyd, who is a Chicago native. She joined us in our kitchen to demonstrate her recipe for Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pie Cookies.

Magnolia Bakery opens October 1 at 108 N. State Street, with entrances in Block 37 and street side.
