These cupcakes are pretty good but the cake is a little dry. If not for the filling they put in the cupcakes it would be completely dry. I just feel like they are too big. No one should be consuming this much sugar in one sitting.

I'm a fan of gooey, moist, dense cakes and cupcakes. They can be large, small or medium, and I enjoy many different flavors and combinations.
Crumbs has all of the flavors and more, but the cupcakes they bake are, for the most part airy and dry. I don't mean stale, it is just a different style of confection. If you are a fan of the lighter version, this place is for you. And, apparently, there are many more of you than me.

The cupcakes look gorgeous, but they lack any kind of unique flavor. Very expensive as well and they don't have any alternatives, such as sugar, gluten or diary free for example. Would rather make my own.

The best cupcakes in NYC. The flavor and the choices are just the best especially the "Carrot Cupcake."

This little bakery has every kind of cupcake you can imagine. The cupcakes were fresh and the service was excellent. The coffee was exceptional. We had the red velvet and the rainbow cupcakes. They were so delicious. Of course, they were very expensive, but you won't be disappointed.
