My sister-in-law Amy loves cupcakes! When the craze hit Seattle, she was all over it. I didn't quite understand it until Sweet Tooth Fairy came to Provo and had those amazing cake bites. Well, I figured when I moved to New York I would be eating cupcakes all of the time, but after trying Magnolia's cupcakes I was a little disappointed. (Although their banana pudding made up for it in a huge way!) I had heard of Crumbs and knew that I needed to try a cupcake form there and had even sampled one at my friend Melissa's house, and it was enough to get to be go to the Crumbs location myself. It only took me almost 8 months of living here to finally go to one, but I did tonight. All I can say is that I am lucky that I waited 8 months because I may have gained 20 pounds had I known about it sooner!! I ordered the classic butterfingers cupcake. Classic, meaning it was smaller than the giant ones. It had this butter cream frosting with butterfingers crumbs in the frosting as well as the cream and crumbs inside the cupcake itself, in a vanilla flavored cupcake. So good! Nate got a Reese's peanut butter one and it was pretty good, but I think mine was better... I think I may need to send some to Amy, she would love them, and it would give me an excuse to go back and try a different kind as well.
