Birthday Cupcakes from Crumbs

My birthday was a couple of days ago and one of the birthday presents I received tonight when I got home from work was a package on my doorstep from my old friend and college roommate, Caroline.  Caroline has a history of giving not only awesome presents but also creative ones that are usually things I wouldn't think of buying for myself or can't justify buying just for myself.  Which makes them the perfect presents, right?  This time around, it was a package of cupcakes from Crumbs Bakeshop in New York.  I had heard of Crumbs before but have never visited their bakery or tried anything from it.  Once again, perfect present. 

The package contained 6 good-sized cupcakes and Caroline had even sent me cupcake pedestals from Olive & Cocoa so I could display these properly.  I plan to try one a night until they're gone.  In the meantime, I'm packaging them into ziploc freezer bags (one cupcake to a freezer bag - they're that big) and putting them into the freezer for safe keeping.  Until it's their turn.  Pictures speak a thousand words so I will let the cupcakes speak for themselves.  Thanks, Caroline!
