Crumbs Bake Shop

October 13, 2009

You’d think we would have had enough to eat after lunch at Cafe Vida but we just HAD to leave room for dessert!  (Not to mention the fact that we had stopped at 7-11 before heading to Pacific Palisades and all got slurpees and Boyfriend and I got corn dogs as a snack.)

We went to Crumbs Bake Shop in Malibu for cupcakes.  It was cupcake and frosting galore in there!  So many choices!

(From top L going clockwise.)  Boyfriend got a peanut butter chocolate cupcake.  He kept raving about how much he liked it.  I went with an Oreo cupcake.  It was quite boring and the half Oreo on top was soggy.  Next time I’ll be more exciting and not get something so predictable.  Faye got a Snickers cupcake with pieces of Snickers candy bar on top which she said was very good.  Jill got her usual, Red Velvet.  Jill once got a Red Velvet cupcake from Crumbs and said they put buttercream frosting on it instead of cream cheese, the nerve!  She gave them another chance though and this time she approved. : )

I think I’ve mentioned before how much I heart green tea. They have GREEN TEA & OREO McFlurrys at McDonald’s in Japan!!  Needless to say, I went more than once. : )

Is it sad that my first post after Japan is about McDonald’s?!?  The green tea / oreo combination  was really exciting for me. : )

Boyfriend and I also quite liked the “Shaka Shaka Chicken” on their 100 yen menu.  It’s a piece of breaded chicken that comes in a little paper bag.  You can choose from three flavors (we chose spicy garlic) and you pour the powder into the bag and shaka shaka it!! a.k.a. shake.

The chicken was super moist and a great little snack for 100 yen!
