If you bring your MasterCard to Magnolia Bakery today, you’ll get a free cupcake in honor of Justin Timberlake’s 33rd birthday. No, they don’t have Justin’s face on them (we asked), but the promotion maybe makes sense? Timberlake has a two-year, multi-million dollar endorsement deal with MasterCard. Plus his pal Andy Samberg, a guest at JT and Jessica Biel’s wedding, penned “Lazy Sunday” — a tribute to the bakery with “all the bomb frostings” — before going on to co-star with Timberlake in “Dick in a Box.” AND Biel apparently enjoys making cupcakes for Timberlake. PLUS using letters in Timberlake’s last name, you can form words such as “eat,” “bake,” and “milk.”
The point is: flashing your MasterCard will get you a free classic, specialty, or mini cupcake (like anyone would order a mini cupcake when the regular-sized ones are gratis) in any flavor. (Sorry, “Strawberry Bubblegum” is not a flavor.)
This deal is in effect at all of Magnolia’s NYC stores. Five locations equals five free cupcakes — just sayin’.
