Crave Cupcakes in Uptown Park dropped a dozen cupcakes off at Eating...Our Words this morning to give us a chance to try out its special holiday flavors: gingerbread with cream cheese frosting and eggnog with nutmeg frosting (with a perky green and red holly replica on top).
Also included in the box were crowd favorites red velvet and dark chocolate. As always, Crave gets an A-plus for presentation, and as always, people tend to have extremes of opinion over whether these are the best cupcakes in the city.
In any event, if you have a spare $46 and want to splurge on a dozen cupcakes, Crave will be happy to oblige and even offers to customize your decorations to fit Christmas or Hanukah.
