a first-timer!

My apologies for my absence this past week, but my friend Lindsay was out visiting and there was no time for blogging.

However, there most definitely was time for Crumbs!!

One of the most-requested places from our visitors is Crumbs, so of course we had to stop by while Linds was here.  Though not much of a 'cupcake person' herself, she was still very curious to see what all the hype was about.

Here we are outside the shop at the Americana in Glendale:

And here are our selections; chocolate chip cookie dough (Mark), red velvet (Linds), and cotton candy (mine):

The chocolate chip cookie dough cupcake is vanilla cake with chocolate fudge filling covered in vanilla cream cheese frosting mixed with chocolate chip cookie pieces and topped with a cookie:

The cotton candy is one of my absolute faves and is a regular order for me.  Vanilla cake, buttercream filling, a pink buttercream icing and candy pieces around the outside. Love love love love love!!

Enjoying every bite:

The red velvet is a favourite among our guests too.  Classic red velvet cake with buttercream filling, topped with cream cheese frosting, red velvet crumbs, and sprinkles.

I documented Linds' first few bites

At first I was a little worried about her reaction as she did not say a word or make a peep after three full bites.  But once she hit that filling in the centre, she was almost converted to a cupcake groupie. Still working on this one, but I'm confident that with more time, I can pull her over to the sweet side.

Thanks for the awesome visit Linds!!


  1. those are HUGE cupcakes. I love the personalized cupcake liners for the shop. SO nice!

  2. Although not a true cupcake lover yet, I finally understood what all the hype was about! Overall, my first Crumbs experience was pretty memorable!
