Cupcakes are great, but many are wondering how this little birthday and school room treat has come to create such a fuss. Not only are cupcake centric eateries springing up across the country, from home-style Magnolia Bakery on the East Coast to Sprinkles in Beverly Hills, but these once quaint cakes are being served everywhere - even at black tie events!
You may be thinking, who cares what it looks like, will it taste good? The answer is, Yes! Generally speaking, any flavor or type of cake can also be baked as cupcakes. It is not uncommon for a stacked or tiered cake to have two or three different flavors, but here is where cupcakes can have a great advantage. With cupcakes one would be more easily able to offer a larger variety of flavors. In addition, cupcakes can make it much easier to identify the different flavors than with a standard cake. Plus, there is no waiting to get to the flavor on the bottom; and who wants to deal with all that mess from cutting and serving?
Party guest see a cupcake, and think "portion control. It is a small cupcake, as opposed to a large slice of cake. Therefore, when one is offered a piece of cake, the "small request" can be eliminated. One doesn't have to verbally single themselves out, requesting a "small piece". The "small piece" request always comes off as if you are trying not to indulge. It's a party, everyone is indulging. The expression is very worn out, old and tired. Three cheers for the cupcake.
