I want some Crumbs

It just so happens that a neighbor of mine had given us a $10 coupon good for use to a several eateries at the Americana. Hey coupons for free food, why not? One of those choices was Crumbs Bake Shop. Next to Michael Stars and Trattoria Amici. I've been there several times before and I enjoy the cupcakes quite a bit. It a nice treat after a long walk.



Plus, the cupcakes are huge! Just how huge? Oh, I'de say larger than the size of my fist. Literally!!!

I get two red velvet, one Bryant Park, and one Cookie Dough. 


Oh, delicious cuppy cakes ready to be eaten by yours truly. I didn't eat it all, of course. I did share with my mom. It is mother's day weekend after all. I ain't greedy. I share when sharing is required...when it comes to food. ;-)

Here's the descriptions of the cupcakes from their website:

Red Velvet: Authentic red velvet cake with rich cream cheese frosting and edged with red velvet crumbs

Bryant Park: A chocolate cake with chocolate mousse inside, topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting, chocolate cake crumbs, and white chocolate shavings around the edge

Cookie Dough: Vanilla cake with chocolate fudge filling covered in our signature vanilla cream cheese frosting mixed with soft chocolate chip cookie pieces and topped with a chocolate chip cookie.

 Inside the Bryant Park

Inside cookie dough

Each cupcake has a nice blob of mouse, ganache, or frosting in the center. Mmmm... Just eating half of each is enough to fill me up some what. I'm telling you they are BIG!! They do have a cupcake that's nearly the size of a cake. I'll have to share with you how the red velvet looks inside tomorrow. It was tempting to chomp down, but I didn't want to push it and end up with massive sugar high. I mean look at how thick that frosting is one there!!! hahaha... One cup cake is already a lot. :)

I eat cupcakes the same way I do muffins. Bottom first, then the top along with the frosting after.

How awesome that you got a coupon for this place! These cupcakes look outrageously good...so good I'm just about ready to jump on a plane and fly down there! I don't know which one I would try first. :D

I've had Crumbs from the BH location and they are huge! I do think their cupcakes are better than Sprinkles...much less dry. And the frosting is out of this world!!

You eat the bottom of the muffin first? Weird! Haha, I only eat the tops. I'll tolerate the bottom, but not my fave!
