The first time I tried Crumbs in DC, I was pretty disappointed- the massive cupcake was dry along the outside, and the frosting felt dried out and crusty. However, I figured I'd give them another try when I was by one recently; this time picking up one of their mini cupcakes to try out instead.
I'm glad I did, because this mini cupcake was much better than the regular cupcake I had tried previously. It's a little two-biter, perfect for when you want a little something sweet. The vanilla flavor is just right, not too overwhelming or perfume-y, as vanilla flavors can sometimes be. The cake was moist, and the frosting was tasty as well. Try out the mini cupcakes (they usually have a few flavors) if you're in the mood for a little bite of sweetness!
