Crumbs Bake Shop: Crazy For Cupcakes


When it’s time to reward the kids for their good behavior—or when mom and dad have a sweets craving of their own—head over to Crumbs Bake Shop in Larchmont Village for the most delicious cupcakes in town. As you enter the tidy shop, try not to press your noses against the display case all at once, as row after row of scrumptious treats beckon you to push that juice cleanse off for another day or two. The little ones will jump up and down with excitement when they see all the different flavors with funny names. There are bite-sized “tastes” kids can pop into their mouths in one clean motion and “classics” that take a couple of bites to finish, but they’re probably going to badger your for the six-ounce “signature” size. Indulge them with a few varieties and then cut them into quarters so everyone can share. For chocolate fiends, the blackout is essential: chocolate cake filled with fudge and custard and topped with chocolate cream cheese frosting. Fruit lovers will relish the blueberry swirl, with delicate vanilla cake filled with blueberry jam and caramel and topped with toasted coconut. And your young adventurer will appreciate a Girl Scout chocolate PB crème, filled and frosted with peanut butter cream cheese and topped with a chocolate drizzle. Crumbs bakes more than 50 varieties every day, with a new flavor every Monday, so check back often to see the latest. You just might find a flavor so amazing that you have to possess it in its most impressive form, the “colossal,” a 6 1/2 inch high cupcake big enough to serve eight. If the prospect of that’s not enough to get the kids to do their homework, nothing is.
