The Best Way to Eat a Cupcake
Cupcakes are delicious. We all know this. But if we're honest with ourselves, we're all there for the frosting, and the cake is merely as a facilitator. In other words, the entire cake section is more or less just a frosting taxi to escort the delicious creamy topping by the shortest route possible into our faces. And sometimes, there is just too much cake in your cupcake. Trying to take a bite leaves you with frosting all over your nose and crumbs all over your shirt. So everyone is forced to make a choice: eat the cake first and save the real treat for last, or take care of the frosting first and be left with the less delicious bottom section.
Well, folks- there is now a third option.
And it's the best one yet.
You'll never go back.
Cupcakes have been revolutionized.
Simply pull off the bottom half of the cake, stick it right on top of the frosting, and voila! You have a cupcake sandwich. And it is perfectly proportioned. The cake to frosting ratio is spot on, and the eating experience is like nothing you've ever dreamed of.
So now you're craving cupcakes, and rightly so. The only thing wrong with cupcakes- (no non-messy way to eat while enjoying both cake and frosting equally) - has been remedied, which has suddenly made cupcakes the perfect dessert.
In case you don't live around any great bakeries, or you're just a sucker for DIY, here's a basic cupcake recipe:
