Cupcakes: The Latest Food Fad
The past few years have been dominated by the cupcake. According to BBC News Magazine, cupcake sales increased by 22% in 2009 and cupcake was the fastest rising recipe search on Google. It is part of a bigger trend; home baking product sales went up by 20% from 2003-2007. A sociologist from City University London thinks the world is yearning for a combination of the contemporary and the nostalgic. Some people believe there is an overall trend reminiscent of 1950s domesticity. People are picking up knitting, sewing, baking, and gardening.
Without a doubt, the world is obsessed with cupcakes right now. There are cupcake shops, cupcake websites, and cupcake tv shows. People are even getting cupcake tattoos! Maybe they're popular simply because they are little, they are colorful, and they are just plain adorable!
