Originally from NY, Crumbs shows LA what cupcakes should be like, massive and flavorful.
The staff is super friendly and the shop offers mini sized cupcakes as "samples" to each customer. I tried their sample of Cotton Candy, which was too pretty to resist in pink, blue and purple. It was basically a vanilla/butter cream cupcake with cotton candy like rocky sprinkles on top of pink frosting. It was moist and simple.
I?m a fan of diverse flavors and Crumbs did not disappoint with large cupcakes for $3.75 in varieties that included key lime, blueberry cobbler, pina colada, banana split, cookie dough, Boston cream, caramel apple, pistachio, hostess, carrot cake, fluffernutter and so many more.
I especially like their pumpkin and raspberry swirl.
Pros: Lots of choices and flavors, more value for your buck, no pretentiousness
Cons: You'll get full quick on these large and sweet cupcakes
