    And Baba Booey to all of you!

    Seriously, the Baba Booey cupcake at Crumbs is great.

    Do we really need another cupcake joint?

    When we gonna get a primo bean pie joint? Sick of dragging my lazy ass up Broad St.

    Crumbs is not just another cupcake joint. It is a way of life. It separates the little girls from the women and inspires sonnets.
    Ok, it’s not that awesome, but those cakes are my favorite cupcakes on the planet. Ugh, I’m letting out my pants now as we speak.

    At least Crumbs seems to give more for your money. Most of the joints in town charge $3 for a regular size cupcake.

    We absolutely DO have too many cupcake places, but that’s not bad news for Crumbs, which is actually good. It may be bad new, however, for some of the medicore joints in town.

    I haven’t eaten a cupcake since 5th grade when Moms were allowed to bring in food for bdays. I have no idea how this trend survives.
