What gives, WC??
I think cupcakes are one of the hardest things to review! Sooo many people I know are in love with Crumbs cupcakes, but I can't help feeling like I'm just eating a cupcake shaped cake with twice as much frosting. I much prefer Magnolia, but others say the frosting is too sweet (but I like it!). It's really hit or miss with cupcakes, I think.

Crumbs has nothing on Magnolia. Plus Crumbs aren't actually made in the strore, though they strive to give you that impression. In a nutshell, Crumbs is quantity, Magnolia is quality.

Some of the Magnolia recipes you can find online and save yourself the trip!

As someone who lived in other countries and traveled quite a lot, I find the food at restaurants in America bad with only few exceptions.
When someone complains about restaurant food in a county like Westchester, I always ask: do you find the food significantly better in Rockland, Ulster, Putnam, Dutchess. etc, etc..?
Another weird custom is restaurants closing around 8:00pm....In other countries such places only open at 10:00pm ! But hey, that's America.

CUPCAKES???? This is what you worry about? And at $13 for 4? How good can they possibly be? Get serious, people.

As another that has done the same, I wonder the same thing. Apparently the answer in Cali is "yes" though I haven't personally found that to be so.

Worried? About cupcakes? Hardly. It came up in the progression of the conversation. It happens. The fact that our tangent into cupcakes upset you so much is actually what worries me...

I plan on covering all kinds of things in my blog. Cupcakes might be one of them.

In fact, in the grand scheme of things, worrying about the quality of restaurants in Westchester is a probably a waste of time. Yes, there might not be as many great ones as the city, but there are plenty of good and decent places to visit, and honestly, most of us are out here because we want space and a home with amenities like a decent sized kitchen, so hopefully we are spending our property tax dollars wisely and eating at home as often as we can.

I'm always on the hunt for the ultimate cupcake. If anyone has any ideas, please pass them along! I have yet to try The Cupcake Kitchen in Irvington. Looks promising - uber cute retro decor.
