You Can Get "Crumbs-Esque" Cupcakes in Astoria

I was in the mood for a good cupcake on Thursday night and heard that Il Bambino is the place to get 'em. Immediately upon walking in, I was accosted by a giant display of even more giant cupcakes. I took one look and something went off in my head--these cupcakes looked familiar! Given my addiction to chocolate and other baked goods, I immediately thought that they were from Crumbs bakery. I asked the waitress and while they're not Crumbs branded, they use the same bakers--good enough for me!

What I love about these cupcakes is their variety of flavors and the moist dough that's sometimes compromised in other fancy bakeries (i.e. Magnolia cupcakes). The great thing about the ones at Il Bambino is that they're cheaper than Crumbs--$3 per cupcake compared to almost $4.

So...if you're a cupcake enthusiast, go over to Il Bambino and let the sweetness take over.

    Little would you want to eat a crumbs cupcake after the NPR story that was done on it. Bleck. The Vanilla cupcake has 780 calories and 36g of fat.

  2. Ouch--I hear ya but a cupcake is a cupcake. You expect it to be bad for you, that's why it's a treat. I usually cut those babies in half. Thanks for looking out!
