Crumbs Bake Shop Opens Downtown Next Week

Crumbs Bake Shop will open the first of two new DC stores next week. This New York based bakery specializes in cupcakes, but offers other items like custom made whole cakes as well. 

The Metro Center location, at 604 11th St NW, is scheduled to open Saturday November 13th. There is another soon-to-be-open location at Union Station, on the ticketing level.

Crumbs doesn't offer anything vegan at this point, but do sell non vegan cupcakes with names like "The Artie Lang" (vanilla cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting filling, vanilla cream cheese frosting dipped in chocolate fondant, edged with chocolate and vanilla sprinkles) or "The Good Guy" (vanilla cake with rainbow sprinkles baked in, filled with vanilla buttercream frosting and topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting covered with rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate drizzle). Wow. Looks like deluxe cupcake trend is here to stay.

Crumbs will join other high profile DC cupcake bakeries like Red Velvet (7th and E NW), Hello (Dupont) and Georgetown Cupcake (33rd and M NW).
