I am a long time fan of The Howard Stern Show. Yes I, sophisticated Manhattan chick, love Howard & crew, ok? Fart jokes, sex jokes, and all. (Except Sal & Richard...sorry guys). And while commuting by definition is miserable, I do miss getting my daily Sirius-streamed dose. After my fantastic sushi dinner last weekend, hubby and I decided to check out the brandy new Hoboken Crumbs, and imagine my surprise and excitement at the addition of a Baba Booey-inspired cupcake.

Yes, as I and any self-respecting Howard fan knows, Artie started the designer trend by creating his namesake cupcake years ago. Since Crumbs currently ranks atop my "Favorite Cupcake Place" list, I have viewed this glass-cased confection many times, if only to pass over it. Unfortunately Artie, this cupcake is a little too 'fat kid' for me - chocolate buttercream-filled vanilla cake with even more chocolate buttercream and fondant on top. Anyhow, back to Baba Booey. So I am a simple Manhattan chick with simple taste buds, and therefore tend to stick to my standard chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and sprinkles. But when the sweet gal behind the counter told me that the Baba Booey was made of chocolate and peanut butter, it was though it was designed after my own heart.

Ok Artie, perhaps this one is a little 'fat kid' too. You still have my love, but I'm just a peanut butter kind of girl at heart. While I made it through 3/4 of the cupcake before my stomach just said 'no', it was a delicious cupcake that I will definitely be enjoying again...especially at the new super convenient Hoboken locale. Baba Booey, I applaud you and your taste buds.
