Cupcakes are the new vampires. (Insert Edward Cupcake pun here). It’s so “in” to open a cupcake shop- they’re popping up everywhere (like garden gnomes in a cat lady’s yard). Last week, I was in Washington DC and because of requests from multiple people, we were going to stop at DC Cupcakes. Apparently it’s a big deal- it has a TV show?? We got there and the line was out the door with at least 100 people in line up the block just to get in. Uhhhh… ridiculous.
Wait a minute, back to the TV show. People watch a show about a cupcake shop? Wut? Reality TV sucks.
Anyways, cupcakes seem really innocent, but they are evil, taking over towns and moving in to people’s hearts and taste buds. Just because you’re a cute artisan bakery, doesn’t mean you aren’t contributing to the obesity problem in America.
Needless to say, I want to go back to buying my artisan cupcakes at the PTA bake sale and shoving them down my throat @ birthday parties.
P.S. This post is dedicated to garden gnomes. With a good 300 years of history, you shimmer in the sunlight while your jockey friends watch guard.
