I ve been 2 different crumbs, the one at grand central & the one near 42nd & 6th. Both times I ve felt letdown. Compared to magnolia, buttercup & brooklyn cupcake, i find crumbs cupcakes tasteless and dry.
Great, moist, tasty and huge!!! What more can you ask for (other than frosting canceling the cakes calories?). They have a great variety, but be sure that the best bet is always a classic vanilla buttercream!
The only problem: they are addictive, and that is not good for anybody's waistline.
And one suggestion: don't get the small cupcakes or the minis they are dry and don't do justice to the real deal.
It's been christianed a weekly tradition even as I try to lose 11 pounds. Every Wed., my cupcake buddy Karina and I race to Crumbs to indulge. Huge with nice whipped frosting, the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is my fav, but next week I'm going to try the Oreo. Perfect lunchtime break. The space has a very nice vibe and easy listening for your pleasure.
