America's Best New Cupcakes

Slide 21 of 23

Crumbs Bake Shop, Nationwide

The nation’s largest cupcake chain is also one of the best. The two most anticipated flavors for fall are Candy Apple Caramel (apple cinnamon cake with caramel cream cheese frosting that’s been dipped in caramel and edged with chopped pecans) and Red Velvet Delicious (red velvet cake and red cream cheese frosting topped with red sanding sugar and a green fondant leaf). F&W editors’ favorites include the festive Happy Birthday (vanilla-buttercream-filled vanilla-and-rainbow-sprinkle cake iced with vanilla frosting, rainbow sprinkles and a yellow rosette) and Cookies and Cream cupcakes (chocolate cake iced with vanilla-cream-cheese-and-crushed-Oreo frosting and topped with two whole Oreos).
