A provocative view of all that is food

The Cupcake Craze is Slowly Getting Stale

The cupcake craze is slowly getting stale. Thank the food Gods.I like cupcakes and all, but if I had a choice between cupcakes and cake, I’d take CAKE!Look… comedians like Eddie Izzard and Gabriel Iglesias talk about *cake,* not cupcakes. It’s “CAKE OR DEATH??!” not “ummm CUP-cakes…or death?”

When you can have a mouthful of layered rich buttered sugar goodness that clings to dear life on a fork, however big you can possibly make it without it falling off the split second it reaches your piehole, why choose cupcakes?

That leads me to another grand and delicious invention: PIE.

Pie.

Need I really say more? You can stuff just about anything on top of a crust or between multiple crusts – savory, sweet, sour, BURSTING with goodness with flakes of buttery pie crust delivering the goods….

*Sigh*

Cupcakes are fine…they’re kinda fluffy and non-committal. I’m a full-commitment, let’s dig into this thing, kinda gal.

The world needs more cakes and pies, bring it on!
