Why do we love cupcakes? We’re all adults here at Fooding Blog – for the most part, anyway. Shouldn’t we be eating grown up desserts like crème brulee or some kind of dowse-with-brandy-and-set-on-fire thing? Don’t get me wrong: I love a good crème brulee, but it requires a torch and a utensil.
Cupcakes, however, remind us that it’s ok to feel like we did as kids, when dessert was fun and gooey and colorful. They remind us it’s ok to eat with our hands and get a little frosting on our chins and maybe on our shirts too. Cupcakes remind us that desserts don’t always require an open flame.
