Hey guys! I owe you all a super big apology for my lack of posting last week! Things here are INSANELY busy with the band! If you missed my big news, I'm the new singer in a cover band! It's pop/Latin fusion, so I'm having to learn some songs in Spanish! (I'm channeling my inner Shakira...see below ;) ) But as you can imagine, with rehearsals 3x a week, school, auditions, and just life in general, I have hardly had anytime to breathe, let alone blog!
But I'm on top of my game now, and back at it. I've got the ingredients in the fridge for a yummy new recipe, and I'm excited to share it with you! Well, I hope you had a great weekend! I know I did! Lots of fun "Halloweeny" things! :) A pumpkin carving party on Friday and then a house warming party last night! I may or may not have stayed out until 4am.... :D So. Big news. BIG NEWS. Brace yourselves people. Crumbs Bake Shop has a GLUTEN FREE STORE!!
Yes, THAT Crumbs. The incredibly amazing cupcake shop in NYC.
Friends, they've done the impossible. They opened an ALL GLUTEN-FREE cupcake and bake shop!!!!
And my mom and I were one of the first people in it! Yep, we stumbled upon this little gem on its second day!
Now, sadly, I couldn't have any of the cupcakes because I follow the Specific Carb Diet (read: grain free...these cupcakes are free of gluten, but still contain Gluten Free grains, like rice flour, chick pea flour, etc.). But my mom had one. Now she's not gluten free, but she said, and I quote, "These were the best cupcakes...ever." She said they were moist and outrageously delicious. She had the red velvet.
But there were SO MANY!! Carrot Cake, Cookies n' Creme, Red Velvet, Death By Chocolate, Classic Vanilla, Vanilla and Chocolate, a "Little Debbie's style" one, chocolate chip...and other decadant cookies and cakes!
And they even had Dairy Free options!! Swoon:)
But look at these babies! All. That. Frosting!!
And no, you're not dreaming...that's a gluten free cookies n' creme cupcake.
Have we died and gone to Heaven?! I don't know, but I'm pretty sure there will be one of these shops on Pearly Gate Lane:)
And look at how friendly the employees were. They couldn't wait to share their gluten free goodness with us.
AND WILL YOU LOOK. AT. THOSE. SAMPLES?!!! Legit 1/4 of a cupcake....
Crumbs. Check it out next time you're in NYC. It's in the village...around 5th Ave and 8th St.
