On Cupcakes

Cuuuuuuuupcaaaaaaaaaaaakes!

Who doesn’t love them?!?!

In the past few years there has been a huge influx of cupcake-only bakeries where those delectable, trendy, perfect little servings of cake with a perfect size dollop of frosting on top are the main feature behind pretty glass cases.  It’s almost like they are works of art waiting to be devoured by serious gourmands and Betty Crocker mix lovers alike.  Google the terms ‘cupcake bakery’ and it yields nearly 12 million results of places where cupcakes are the main feature.  This place in Portland, Oregon for example serves up such flavors as malt ball, pumpkin spice, and peanut butter cookie.  In Beverly Hills flavors such as chai latte, lemon coconut, cinnamon sugar, ginger lemon, mocha, and red velvet are featured at this place.  Not only has the craze taken to cupcake-only bakeries, but also exist thousands of websites and blogs devoted just to those who are fanatic about cupcakes.  Even SIGG has picked up on this recent craze, offering this in their new product line.

I mean, how could you not love cupcakes?  They come in all flavors and different sizes, and It’s your own perfect little size piece of cake!  I’m sure wherever you live, there is a cupcake bakery somewhere close.  Look it up and go buy a cupcake.  Right now!

These are some of my latest creations (though I do not claim to be a cupcake artist nor strive to create works of art like those in the cupcake bakeries, and my seriously gourmand sister would probably claim I have no idea how to make red velvet cupcakes).
