OK, so I just started working in the E.R., which I've already learned in two short days is guaranteed to contain two things:
1. Crazy people
Um, can I even begin to tell you how much I adore cupcakes? The (rather genius) E.R. nurses take turns bringing in a variety box from Happy Cupcakes every single week. We're all still in winter hibernation mode, and bikini season is but a teensy blip on a distant horizon, right? Besides, this whole cupcake craze is probably just a massive trend that will soon go the way of the Krispy Kreme glazed donut, so I better get my fill while supplies last. Logic says eat cupcakes.
Let's discuss these fluffy morsels of happiness, starting with the mind-blowing variety of flavors out there. Mint chocolate chip. Coconut lemon drop. Pancakes and bacon -- YES! -- I said bacon. And, naturally, you can get your cupcake in most any form: mini, jumbo, in a jar, on a stick... and let's not forget the cupcake truffle: an evil little lump of cupcake scraps smushed together with icing to form a ball of PURE BLISS. You guys are familiar with Cupcake Math, aren't you? It goes like this: Teenager in V-Fib + Construction Worker With Compound Tibial Fracture + Crazy Lady Who Keeps Coming in Demanding We Operate on Her Pretend Cat x Hangover = 2 cupcakes.
Alright, keep me company up here on my cupcake soapbox. What's your favorite cupcake flavor? And once the cupcake ship has sailed, what do you think will be the next big on-the-go dessert trend? I vote for whoopie pies!
