Fact: I'm a Real Life Sugar Baby

 {Image via}
I love sugar. My sweet tooth knows no bounds, and I have been known on more than one occasion to eat sugar exclusively in lieu of any substantive meal. It's a definite problem, but one I'm rather content to continue indulging - so long as I try to keep myself in check the majority of the time. After all, there is nothing beneficial in sugar, and in fact, it has the annoying ability to convert itself directly into fat, so I am certainly not ignorant of the dangers I pose to my own health in continuing my habitual enjoyment of sweets. Taking these risks in stride, and in light of this sugar obsession, I finally made it to Crumbs bakery for the first time since moving to New York. (And yes, I know Crumbs is now in Los Angeles so I can't even claim any sort of uniqueness by my having finally partaken of the trend.) I can honestly tell you all that these cupcakes are worth the hype - Coconut Vanilla and Raspberry Swirl were both moist and incredibly flavorful, in both the cake and the frosting. Worth every single calorie, especially enjoyed with a glass of chilled white wine. Ugh, now I want another!
 And, no, I have no idea why all my rotations on this picture are not sticking. Sorry for making you dizzy on a Thursday morning.


  1. Oh my gosh YUM! Love that you paired with white wine. Whenever it is that I get out to visit you, we are going there! Haha..even though there's one in L.A.

  2. Fabulous Alexa, that sounds grand! :) Next time I'm in Cali perhaps I'll have to pop in with a couple cupcakes and a bottle o' vino to visit you and your new familial addition!
