Shyema and I have always been divided on the Crumbs cupcake front, and our most recent food fight is about to jump off.
I like a cupcake that consists of soft, moist cake, and icing that delivers an even balance of sugar-to-butter flavor ratio to the palate.
Shy likes a cupcake that has soft cake, soft icing, and a homemade taste (I personally think their cupcakes come pretty close to all of these, though, they could use a pinch less sugar in the icing), and she feels about Crumbs how I felt about the desserts on my cruise–they look good, but just don’t deliver.
Maybe something has changed with Crumbs in NYC since I left for the West Coast, but our cupcakes are fresh and delish.
In fact, I plan to spend Valentine’s Day (also known in the single world as “Black Sunday”) with a few of my girls gorging on one of Crumbs’ lovely holiday themed treats.
Are you on Team Shy or Team Mel?
