Nothing left but “Crumbs”

I am journeying back to New York City in my mind to collect my thoughts about the best damn cupcakes I ever had the pleasure to taste minus my own (yup that’s me, modest mouse).

Crumbs Bake Shop was not even in the plans for my NYC trip it was just serendipity, plain and simple. Can I say when I walked into the store and saw the case, I truly wanted one of everything … it all looked so delicious and fantabulous! If I was a Billionaire and hung with the likes of Ophree or the Queen I would have bought all the cupcakes since that would be how I would roll.

It took awhile to decide what cupcakes would have the pleasure of leaving with me. Cookie Dough was looking good and so was Mama Mia, Milkshake, Red Velvet, Half Baked, Happy Birthday …. Happily, I did reach a decision and it was chocolate all the way with these two beauties:

Cupcakes from Crumbs

I like to think I made the right decision.

I was going to try and wait to eat my cupcakes when I returned home to Virginia but I did not have that much restraint, I had to sample one or both before the trip back home. I only sampled one; Devil’s Food was my poison and it was de-frickin-licious! It was perfectly chocolately with a surprise (to me) creamy center and Vanilla Buttercream. The cupcake was not one note like some chocolate cupcakes or cakes can be at times. Oh, did I mention the size of the cupcakes? They are ginormous – seriously, GINORMOUS. You get your money’s worth when you buy cupcakes from them

I should also mention that Crumb’s cupcakes freeze beautifully. I froze my cupcakes so they would have a chance to remain fresh until I arrived back home. Using the freezing and refrigeration technique I was able to enjoy Devil’s Food and the Blackout cupcake upon returning back home.

The Blackout Cupcake is a chocolate lovers dream … if you love chocolate, plus more chocolate, and then some more – then this cupcake is for you (and me). It’s moist and rich and I could not eat it in one sitting, it actually took me a few days.

So, if you are going to New York City or California, Washington DC, Connecticut, Illinois, New Jersey or Virginia you need to find Crumbs Bake Shop and indulge – you only live once unless you believe in re-incarnation.

Until Next Time,
Jennifer
