OK, I really want to know what’s the big deal about cupcakes? In recent years more and more bakeries specialize in just cupcakes. There’s reality tv shows about them. C’mon! Really? A tv show about a freakin’ cupcake? Were you really that bored?
Cupcakes used to be treats you took to kids’ classrooms for celebrations because they were the same size and uniform and the kids wouldn’t fight over them. They were all the same. No end piece. No special flower. Just a regular old cupcake. Not today. You can get specialty cupcakes custom designed that are all fancy-schmancy.
Guess what! Given the choice between a civilized piece of cake that I can eat with a fork and not end up wearing and a cupcake that half of it tears away when you pull the paper down, I’m going with civility. Plus I can savor my cake. I’m an adult and need to enjoy things like this when I get them. I don’t want to feel like I have to shove a wad of cake in my mouth because crumbs are making a mess. I don’t want to wonder, “How much frosting did I get on my face?”
And I’m sorry if you like cupcake reality tv shows, but I think there are better things on. Believe me I have tried watching that show. It drove me nuts.
