Rise of the Cupcakes: a food trend that has outlasted my expectations
I like cupcakes, but I have always been leery about how incredibly popular they became. Spawning tv shows, a record number of shops, they became the perfect hipster food. You could like them, consider them kitch and ironic, and trash them all at the same time.
I am however, completely sick of this trend. Please die. Cake pops are lauded as the next big thing, which makes me almost want to swallow the stick as well and put myself out of this culinary misery. Here’s an idea. Bring back pie.
Pie. Fill them with fruit, with meat, and yes, even bacon. Pie is warm, can be shared with family, and is even a mathmatical term. Pie wins over cupcakes any day in my opinion. It’s time.
