Crumbs Cupcakes: A Passover Tease

Crumbs Bake Shop has a line of Passover inspired cupcakes this year. Passover inspired, which is apparently very different from Kosher for Passover.

Here’s their description of the cupcake teases:

Our collection of flourless cupcakes for Passover includes the Holy Moses – Chocolate Cake, fudge filling, chocolate cream cheese frosting covered in chocolate fondant and sprinkles, two Chocolate and Vanilla Commandments – chocolate cake, vanilla cream cheese filling, vanilla fondant with rainbow sprinkles, two Raspberry Red Sea cupcakes – nut cake filled with raspberry preserve, raspberry vanilla cream cheese frosting, sliced almonds and raspberry drizzle and Elijah’s Delight– nut cake with fudge filling, chocolate buttercream frosting and chocolate shavings. Our cupcakes are not Kosher for Passover.

I am kind of over the whole cupcake insanity, but I have to admit, these sound awesome, and anything that doesn’t call for 11 pounds of matzah meal is an improvement over most of the baked goods one finds on Passover. That’s why it’s such a bummer that these cakes are not actually okay to eat on Passover.

Crumbs, baby, why do you have to lead me on like this? You’re such a tease, cupcake.
