    It annoys me to see the massive (around the block deep) at Georgetown cupcake. Even after they moved to a larger location. I pity all the guys stuck in line, but then they have these goofy satifised grins on their faces. [​IMG]

    The Macrina Bakery in Seattle sells the only cupcake I like, but it has a filling and is not fluffy like most.

    I'd hit that like the fist of an angry god.

    I never liked cupcakes but have tried hundreds until I discovered
    the organic cupcakes (ive tried them a few places) and they are to die for.

    Organic Red Velvet Cupcakes are amazing


    not to be mean, but please tell me this is a parody.

    The cupcake fad may indeed suck on many levels. But without it, I would have never tried a red velvet

    haha, do you know what red velvet cake is? chocolate with flavorless red food coloring

    Cake: does anyone make superb cake? If so, do you expect a cupcake shop run by two 30-yr-old lesbian home-trained cooks to be able to do the same? no. It's fucking obvious why every middle-aged privileged white woman without any other marketable skill is trying to move in on this business. Need to afford teh Beamerz with no husband yet
    Pebble, I happen to agree with you that a good bagel is more impressive than a cupcake, but I find the homophobia and misogyny of your post totally repellent. Must every thread descend to the gutter?

    of course there are. there are chocolate cakes that are made with chocolate, chocolate cakes that are made from chocolate and cocoa and chocolate cakes that are made from cocoa. the thing that makes a red velvet cake particular is the combination of cocoa and buttermilk. OK?
