Just in time for Easter and — we’re not joking here — Passover, More Cupcakes is rolling out a springy cupcake menu that will help you forget any trace of the winter we’re just barely scraping out of.
In the interest of journalistic accuracy, we sampled some of the new flavors — the Easter-appropriate Cadbury creme egg cupcake doesn’t actually contain a Cadbury creme egg; instead, it is one, with intense chocolate cake encasing a creamy vanilla center that melts just like it ought to. The Passover-friendly (flour-free!) Apricot Almond cupcakes are enough to get you psyched about 40 years wandering in the desert. Lemon poppyseed, carrot ginger, a strawberry-rhubarb topped with a meringue Easter basket — it’s too good.
Full spring menu, post-jump!
