“When we come into the market, people are going to realize what a real cupcake is all about,” said Crumbs bakery owner Jason Bauer. See, they’re coming down here from Noo Yawk to tell us just how the kids in the big city eat their cupcakes.
The outrage is pretty palpable right now:
David Hagedorn: “Hey, you Crumbs, nothin’ DCers like more than ferners comin’ here to show us rubes what’s what. Keep your cupcakes & hire some (local) PR.”
Jenna Huntsberger: “”We weren’t impressed w/ anybody’s product” in ANY DC cupcake stores? So arrogant. Nice way 2 introduce yrself 2 DC community”
Nichole : “[A]nd with that, they can be sure I’ll never know. Is being an ass the new way to get people to buy your stuff?”
We could give a rat’s ass how you make cupcakes up north. Here in DC, we practically invented the rebirth of the Cupcake. Cake Love, Hello Cupcake, Georgetown Cupcake, Red Velvet, Baked & Wired, and that’s just what I can think of without working very hard.
Does New York have its own cupcake bakery reality show? I don’t think so. So, really, I know you think you’re going to come in an own the market, but I know one place that I’d rather go hungry than visit: Crumbs. Take your cupcake and shove it in your Yankee piehole, Bauer, we don’t need your filthy third-rate foreign cupcakes.
Besides, I’m betting they’re crumby.
