Ep. 3: Bobbie Lloyd (Magnolia Bakery)
In today's episode, we sit down with Bobbie Lloyd, Chief Baking and Operating Officer at Magnolia Bakery. Magnolia is a bonafide New York City institution—you probably know them for their cupcakes (complete with that signature Magnolia frosting swirl!) or their famous Banana Pudding. While they started as a small bakery in NYC, there are now 25 stores worldwide.
Today we chat about Bobbie's wide-ranging experiences coming up in the food world, favorite flavor combinations at Magnolia Bakery, and what the process of writing a cookbook looks like.

On today's show, we’re speaking to pastry all-star Anna McGorman. She’s the co-creator of the cronut, ex-executive pastry chef at the Dinex Group, and now serves as culinary director at Milk Bar, a beloved powerhouse in the dessert world helmed by Christina Tosi. You’ve probably (or, definitely) seen their iconic birthday cake, truffles, and cereal milk soft serve all over your Instagram feed.
Anna’s done it all, from large restaurants to fine dining to bakeries. Stay tuned for stories involving life-changing bonbons and mountains of onions. We’ll also chat about Milk Bar’s newest project which, hint, promises to bring their treats even closer to home.
