Delicious Cupcakes from Crumbs!!  
Okay,... this is a make up post for last weekend when I was staying in Glendale. :) I'd heard about Crumbs from my friend Melyssa on FB (I always give credit where credit is due...) and found one in Glendale - about 3 minutes from my hotel! :) Needless to say, I had to try it! (Also, Chad Brannon had Tweeted about it not too long ago, too...)

The shop itself was small and cute... nothing much to it except a HUGE glass case of cupcakes! There were SO many to choose from, that I stood there for at least a good 10 minutes trying to decide what I wanted. I finally decided on the cupcakes below...

But,... since my words won't do it justice, I had to take photos!

The store front of the Glendale location. It was in a nice upscale, outdoor shopping area!
The only thing that kind of sucked was the parking... :P

The vastness of the cupcake goodness. :) There was SO much to choose from!!

I decided on the Reeses cupcake, which was INCREDIBLE!! It was a chocolate cupcake filled
with peanut butter, buttercream frosting... with chocolate and peanut butter chips!! SOOO good!

I also picked up a brownie cupcake which was heavenly as well! It was a chocolate cupcake filled
with fudge with brownie chunks on the top. SOOOO delicious!! :)

I also tried the red velvet cupcake because I adore red velvet cake!! It was good, but not spectacular.
It was much better than any red velvet I've ever tasted, but in comparison to the others, it was sort
of standard. Damn good, but standard.

The last one I tried was the Devil Dog... which was a chocolate cupcake fllled with a light sweet cream
and a sweet cream frosting. It was good, but I think I enjoyed the first two a lot more.

These are the two that I plan to try the next time I'm in Glendale (in about two weeks...) :)
These look INCREDIBLE!!

I'm having a nice stay at home weekend attending a wedding, working on web work, and spending lovely time with Mark and the Coopie-face. :) Hope you all are having a nice weekend, too!! HUGS!

Okay that looks INSANELY amazing. The Reese's one alone makes me drool because I'm such a fangirl of peanut butter, omg. WANTS.

It was incredible!! The Reese's cupcake was to-die-for!! :) I really need to go back!

ditto Reese's *melt* Checking to see if there's one in Seattle now. Since I'm heading there for Gnomedex this year! Woo Hoo!! just my luck ... nothing for Seattle. :P Drat!

Damn. None in Seattle? Darn it! I was surprised that there was one in Glendale... that mall even has an H&M! :D I need to go back there... SOON! :D

Wow! I would be all over that Peanut Butter one. (You know about me and my love of peanut butter!)

We have a place out here called Sprinkles - I've never been, but I've had a cupcake from there. It's near Stanford University. I hear there's always a line to get in. One day I will go. Marsha bought me the one that I have tried. It was mocha chip and I am not a big mocha fan (unless it's an actual peppermint mocha) and it was really, really good!
Sheri: Sheri Mangashutterbug93 on August 16th, 2009 04:00 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, I know about your love for peanut butter!! And you would've LOVED this, Andrea! :)

Sprinkles sounds like a place I'd love to try as well! I'm not really into mocha so I wouldn't have been able to really appreciate the one that Marsha got you either... But in general, it does sound really good!!

Remember that place that Mark & I spotted when you and Joe were driving us to the crepe place in Sac? We went there later and got cupcakes!! They were pretty good there too!!

I had a s'more cupcake there that was very tasty!! :)
Regina Phalangethunder_pants on August 16th, 2009 04:11 pm (UTC)
OH! I remember that place! :) Glad to know it was tasty. I will have to try that sometime I am over that way - and back to Big Spoon, of course!

Ahhhhh! Big Spoon!! ::DROOLS::

I like the filled cupcake idea ... I might have to try that with my own. I wonder if they fill the cakes before or after they're baked ?
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on August 16th, 2009 06:13 pm (UTC)
It was so delicious!! :) If you're ever near a Crumbs... you should definitely try to go there! :)

And I think it's a fabulous idea to try it!! I think they fill it after the cupcake is baked. It's just a wonderful thing... :)

I think I too had needed some time to decide which one I would like to try - they all look delicious. But especially delicious looks the brownie cupcake. :) Hope you are have having a nice and relaxing weekend! Big hugs to you, Sheri!

They all looked so good!! I had such a hard time deciding!! The brownie cupcake was delicious!! With the fudge in the middle and the brownie chunks on the top,... it was heavenly!! :)

And thank you, Sabine!! My weekend has been very relaxing! Hope your weekend has been lovely as well!! HUGS!!!

Ooooooooh, the brownie one is literally making my mouth water! It looks SOOOOOO good! What an amazing-looking bakery... definitely my kind of place! :D So glad you were able to make a stop there on your trip!

(GAH... these are not the kinds of photos I need to be staring at as we fight to stay on course with our diets! ;) :P )

The brownie cupcake was incredible! It was SOOOO good that I'm going to have to go back in a couple of weeks. WOW! BTW, there's one in NYC on the same block as my hotel... I'll be going there a lot!!

If you ever have a reason to be in DC, I'm taking you cupcake hopping :) (Georgetown Cupcake isn't as good as it used to be, but Baked and Wired will always be awesome, and Hello Cupcake owns my soul, and Best Buns has the biggest cupcakes for the least amount of money and they are simple but OMG divine.)
Sheri: Sheri Mangashutterbug93 on August 18th, 2009 05:35 am (UTC)
Oh my gosh... those places sound delicious! If I'm ever in the DC area I'd totally be looking to try out those places!! :)
