    First I have heard of a cupcake fad. Must be limited to the US.

    Because they're sickly sweet, since they're cake?

    girls are just silly

    i love the banana pudding at magnolia. i think the cupcakes are hit or miss. i have a feeling they taste good because you wait in line for however many tens of minutes before you get in.

    I can't fathom how awful my life would have to be before I'd be willing to wait for long periods of time for a cupcake.

    Local grocery store by my parents joint in the states sells sheet cake corners for $.75. Quality is dirt, which is just the way I like it.

    If I started a cupcake, or any kind of dessert/pastry shop, I'd call it SugarTits.

    I don't really like normal sponge cakes. If there was a cupcake tres leches or baked ricotta cheesecake I'd be all over it.

    actually, there was an industry survey that predicted single-serving pie was the next thing.
