Sweet Escape: Crumbs

Oh, for the love of cupcakes.

This entry originally took place on April 2.

It's no secret that my friend Chloe has a thing for sweets. Please direct your attention to Crumbs. Crumbs Bake Shop is tucked between Greene Street and University Place, next to Union Square. Across the street, on a sunny day, you can find street performers, skateboarders and artists championing their wares. On the day we happened to be there, a Vitamin Water campaign was in full swing. Free Vitamin Water for all! Sweet (I mean that quite literally).

Chocolate cake with vanilla frosting.

Chloe isn't all too fond of the cake part. It's the frosting that she comes for. The rich, velvety vanilla frosting smears effortlessly onto the chocolate cake. I actually liked the thickness of the cake (much better than Kickass, that's for sure). Frosting is the bomb, though.

Going in for the kill...


One phrase: Power to the sugarboppers!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. I'm not a huge cupcake fan, but for what it is, it makes decent snack fare.
