The Best Way to Eat a Cupcake
Have a Cupcake
It has come to my attention recently that people are searching for some interesting things online. Not only are people confused about how to eat a Tic Tac, people also want information on the right way to eat a cupcake. Now, I am no cupcake eating expert, but I am indeed a fan of cupcakes. I have my cupcake eating technique down and I feel I am ready to share it with the world.
I do not necessarily eat a cupcake the way everyone else does. I like to get the maximum amount of frosting on each bite of cupcake. Although this is not always to tidiest way to eat a cupcake, it is the best way to eat a cupcake... in my opinion. Since I feel I am a rather generous person, I am willing to share this exciting step-by-step cupcake eating tutorial with you. You'd better brace yourself!
Will you try my cupcake eating technique?
Exciting Step-By-Step Cupcake Dining Time
1. The first thing you want to do when eating a cupcake is to remove the cupcake tin or paper from around the cupcake. Yes, some people can make this mistake and try to eat the paper. Don't be that person!
2. I like to then take a nice deep breath and enjoy the smell of the cupcake. I just really like junk food, people... don't judge me! Obviously, this is an optional part to the process, but if you want to be like me, you'd best give the cupcake a good sniff.
3. Once I have thoroughly enjoyed the cupcake experience without starting to munch on it, I like to remove a small portion of the frosting from the top of the cupcake. Now this is when my technique becomes quite controversial! Sometimes, if no one is looking, I simply lick the top portion of the frosting off the cupcake and then take a bite of the bottom of the cupcake. If I am being watched, depending on the situation, I will swipe some off with my finger or remove some frosting with a butter knife.
4. Apply the frosting to the bottom of the cupcake.
5. Take a bite from the bottom of the cupcake! Yes, this is shocking to some, but I begin the cupcake eating process by eating the bottom of the cupcake first. Once the frosting has been applied to the bottom, eating little bites from the bottom with the newly applied frosting evens out the cake and frosting ratio. I know, this has become so scientific!
6. Once you've eaten the entire bottom of the cupcake, it is time to enjoy the rest of the cupcake that still has the original frosting on it.
If you measure out the bites and apply just the right amount of frosting to the bottom of the cupcake, you can easily get a bite of cake with frosting each time you munch on your cupcake. I am all about making every single bite of cupcake as delicious as possible.
