The problem is too many bakeries don't make them moist. And Georgetown cupcake is pretty fucking good

Aren't you supposed to say beetroot juice? You know, if you are old school.

The thing that creeps me out is the fetishism over cupcakes, a la Georgetown Cupcakes. People go crazy and queue for an hour just to pay like $3 per cupcake. Also, the women that own that shop are incredibly unlikeable on their TV show (I had to see what the fuss was about).

I once plowed through box of magnolia cupcakes that was in the kitchen. it belonged to my wife's friend...and they were saving them for a treat after a walk in the park. it wasn't that good. i'd say donuts from The Doughut Plant are better. I ended up having to replace the cupcakes with donuts from the doughut plant.

LOL @ treating oneself after exercise with cupcakes. Good for you for showing them the folly of their ways.

No worries. Maybe foodguy can take a picture of himself holding up some chiseled stones so that we can know what they were called back in his day.

Magnolia sucks. Seriously. I had a red velvet abortion from there the other day and it was dry, flavorless and terrible. The frosting tasted like what I'd imagine moldy gym socks to taste like if they could be liquified then coagulated into a paste. This is the first time I've actually really disliked being paid to eat food.

Never had any at the bakeries, but the misses made these a few times and very good:

Oh boy!!!

That is pretty hilarious. You guys are a piece of art work.

Well I don't even see the point of the fucking cupcakes, but the way you put it I guess I am just a joker in front of you.
