Cupcake shops and cupcakes in general have become very popular. It may be similar to what the coffee industry went through. Cupcake shops started a trend that has quickly caught on. What makes cupcakes so popular? Are they really the perfect dessert? The answer may be in their individual size; small enough to eat by yourself but big enough to satisfy a craving for something sweet. Is it the beautiful decorations that are plain or fancy, casual or formal, crazy colored or pristine white?. Is it because they bring back memories of our childhood? Or delight of having a cake small enough to fit into a tiny hand and not having to share…or perhaps it is the peeling off of the wrapper like a little present to yourself…and the eating of the frosting first, or not you may save the frosting till last. Perhaps it is the versatility of a plate of cupcakes. They are suitable for a midmorning coffee break, afternoon tea or even a wedding reception, cupcakes are always well received.
