These cupcakes earn cherries just for looking like a cup full of fun! I mean, how can you not get a silly smile as you walk into a Crumbs Bake Shop and see the masterful mounds of candy decorated cakes posing on the display racks? So colorful! So decadent! So chunky and fun!
But ummm, so large. Am I supposed to conquer this thing alone?? And mm, tastes a bit artificial, and %50 of the time they're a bit too dry. (sigh)
I want to love these cupcakes, but at the end of the day, they're just not as special as they look. Crumbs cupcakes are fun to enjoy with a friend on a whim, but don't expect to die and go to heaven.
This all said, I do endorse Crumb's mini-cupcakes for special events. Oddly enough, they're far more delightful and delicious in their mini-sized versions :)
