Cupcake Craze (1093)
What’s with all the cupcakes?
What’s with all the hype surrounding the delightful little cupcake? After all, it’s just a cake for one person baked inside a muffin tin.
People are eagerly lining up at new cupcake cafés across the U.S. and other parts of the world. But you’d be hard pressed to find anyone lining up to satisfy their addiction for any other individually portioned food, like Cornish Hens or Bananas!
The reason why cupcakes are so popular is surprisingly simple; they’re delicious. Cupcakes are moist and tasty morsels of cake, covered with just the right amount of fluffy, sweet buttercream. No utensils are necessary. You can use your favorite cake recipe – just add some cupcake papers and a muffin tin!
And let’s not forget the cupcake’s offspring – the mini cupcake! Such mini mini cakes are great for parties because they look adorable on a tiered stand, and you can eat more than one without feeling too guilty!
So next time you have a party – skip the cheesecake, grab a muffin tin, and join the cupcake craze!
