It’s National Cupcake Day, so what’s your favorite flavor?
Confession time: I’m not a huge fan of cupcakes. I KNOW. It’s very sad. But I find them incredibly awkward to eat. They often have a huge mountain of frosting because it “looks pretty” and even the cake part is usually just a little too tall to take a bite of.
I always end up wanting to eat my cupcake with a fork, which people think is weird, so I prefer cake. Cake comes on a plate with a fork. Cake has a normal amount of frosting and I can eat the cake (my favorite part) out from under it if it’s too much. A nice buttercream frosting I don’t mind, but that gritty straight-up sugar frosting usually ends up scraped off on whatever surface I can find.
Ideally I’ll have cupcakes at an occasion with children, which means I can let them eat the frosting off and then I’ll eat the cake part they don’t want. (Unfortunately you can only do this so many times before their parents get really annoyed with you.)
I love the idea of cupcakes, but I’ve never successfully eaten one without looking like a toddler who skipped a nap and got jacked up on sugar instead. But right now, with all the photos and talk of cupcakes going around, I could really go for a chocolate one with coffee-flavored frosting and jimmies on top.
