Cupcake Crawl?

By on July 30th, 2011 . Filed under: Cupcake Ideas .

Ever heard of a cupcake crawl?  It’s the equivalent of pub crawling or bar hopping, except it involves cupcakes.  Basically, you spend a day or an evening visiting several different bakeries and sampling cupcakes.  Sounds pretty sweet, huh?  According to one cupcake enthusiast, a cupcake crawl is best done in a place where there are a number of bakeries to choose from.  Mandy Bekoin, an Illinois newspaper designer and editor, and her friend Sara embarked on a cupcake crawl in Chicago and came back with this tasty treat (and many others, I’m sure!):

The Twixie, inspired by the Twix candy bar at Swirlz Cupcakes

One word of advice from Mandy to aspiring cupcake crawlers?  If you’re going to be out in the heat of summer, bring a large, insulated bag for leftover cupcakes.  If you’re visiting several bakeries, chances are you won’t be able to finish off every single cupcake (sounds crazy, but four or five cupcakes is a lot!), and you’ll want to get your money’s worth out of the adventure.  When you get home, you can freeze the leftovers and enjoy them another day.

Sounds like a fun way to end summer vacation!
