New York cupcake bakery to set up shop in Philly

    What started in New York and spread to L.A. is now coming to Philly.

    Crumbs Bake Shop will open locations in Philadelphia, starting in Center City. Foobooz reports the cupcake bakery is coming our way as part of its plan to open 200 stores nationwide by 2014.

    Details of the Center City location haven’t been announced yet, but University City is on the shortlist for a follow-up shop. The 4-inch tall cupcakes will run you about $3.75 a pop.
