    Cheap Bites: Crumbs Mini-Cupcakes
    The mini-dozen from Crumbs Bakeshop.

    It's gimmicky, but we love when big things are shrunk into smaller packages.

    Take the goods at Crumbs Bakeshop, whose ninth local outpost just opened on 3rd Avenue at 53rd Street: $18 buys you a dozen elaborately frosted miniatures (about two bites each, or one if you have zero restraint whatsoever) of their trademark oversized 'cakes. You can't handpick your flavors -- raspberry swirl! heath bar! devil dog! -- and frankly, we love that too, because sometimes, even control freaks need a day off. A dozen of these makes the perfect hostess gift for all the rooftop barbecues you'll be invited to this summer.
