Crumbs cupcakes are literally all over New York, on every corner, in every little deli, everywhere you stop for a slice, you will find a huge array of Crumbs cupcakes.
There are two things you immediately notice about a Crumbs cupcake:
1. They look unbelievably delicious. Crumbs cupcakes are covered in glorious toppings, sprinkles, crushed Oreos, peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, coconut, fudge, they look amazing.
2. They are massive! I mean really massive, certainly a two person cupcake.
Please forgive me for not trying one, the last thing I want to eat on holiday is a cupcake and I had already feasted at Magnolia Bakery. I did however inspect them very closely.
The secret to the massive Crumbs cupcake is of course a massive cupcake case, not muffin sized but double muffin sized!
I vowed to search the Internet when I got home for some massive cupcake cases of my very own but it turns out I didn't need to, I found some in New York, at NY Cake (aka heaven on earth).
So whilst whipping up batches of cupcakes for the hotels this week I finally got around to trying out my new massive cupcake cases.
My Crumbs inspired Buttercream Bakery Super Cupcake.
Now that is a massive cupcake!
I love the massive cupcakes and will definitely be ordering some more giant cupcake cases.
I'm using them for an order next week, the cupcakes will have particularly large toppers, so a large cupcake will be brilliant.
My massive cupcakes and indeed the mini cupcakes are lemon drizzle, with lemon buttercream and lemon & lime shortbread crumbs to decorate.
The normal or muffin sized cupcake is of course chocolate.
