I am safe to say that I have found cupcake mecca. It is in small chain bakeshop that exists in only New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Connecticut, New Jersey, Virginia and D.C. Pretty much everywhere besides Houston, TX. I traveled to this bakery whilst in NYC, and I found heaven.
Yes, you heard me right. The cupcake connoisseur has found her cupcake kryptonite.
It's Crumbs Bake Shop.
I have only had two of the cupcakes from Crumbs Bake Shop, but they were, literally, the best cupcakes I've ever had in my life.
This is a milkshake cupcake accompanied by my hot coffee (shh! I know I'm not supposed to drink caffeine, but Baby O was asking for it). Marbled vanilla and chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting, and chocolate chips. I was too excited about this cupcake to notice that the coffee was in focus in this picture, and not really the cupcake. Whoops.
But wait! The nice surprise came with the filling! It was malty-goodness! OMG, it was milkshake cupcake heaven. Don't look at my pathetic excuse of cuticles, btw.
This is what was left of my Peanut Butter & Jelly Cupcake. I ate almost all of it before I thought to take a picture of it. (That's a good sign of a fantastic cupcake or a craving pregnant woman - you decide.) The cake was a nice, moist, yellow cake, with peanut butter frosting and graham cracker pieces, filled with strawberry jam. It was perfection.
Crumbs. Oh, Crumbs. Why must you be so far away? Thank goodness you can order their cupcakes online and have them delivered. I have a feeling Baby O will be requesting some in the near future.
Oh, by the way, I'm back!!
I'm happy to be home from my trip! It was a fantastic time and these next couple of posts will be dedicated to recaps! I have so many pictures to share with you, but I had to start with the good stuff (i.e. cupcakes). I also have a giveaway lined up that I'm way too excited about! I'll give you a hint: it has to do with this post.
Also, a HUGE thank you to all of my guest posters (if you haven't read the last 4 posts, you need to go now)! I loved each post so so much and I am so grateful that y'all were here for me when I was out in New York!
In the meantime, be patient with me as I catch up, and be excited as I move forward!
