Cupcakes are the perfect dessert. Just the right size with just the right frosting-to-cake ratio. Easy to serve with no need for cutting a cake into messy pieces that fall apart.
How best to eat them becomes the question. Peel off the entire wrapper, or only one side? Fingers or fork or spoon? Frosting first or all at once? How do you deal with the frosting all over your fingers or face?
Personally, I’m a fan of using a fork. It’s clean, and allows me to control the amount of frosting and cake in each bite. Not to mention it allows for smaller bites so I can savor the incredible little cake longer than I would if I bit right in.
Foodbeast, on the other hand, has a technique for how to eat a cupcake like a gentleman that I had never previously considered. While it wouldn’t work for filled cupcakes, I think I might have to try it next time. Just for fun.
And by next time, I mean after I get back from my vacation and can enjoy that many calories again.
So how do you eat a cupcake?
