Summer time and birthday parties can pose us with many challenges, not the least of which comes in the form of the Ridiculous Cupcake. Here I'll show you some quick cupcake kung fu to help you out of these embarrassing situations.
I love cupcakes. I don't love frosting. But too often, store-bought cupcakes are far to dry to enjoy without the aid of buttercream.
So how in the world is the average person expected to navigate a standard sized cupcake with a mountain of frosting precariously perched atop?? Some techniques might include taking one bite of cake, and one bite of frosting. Another might be to try and rotate bites so as to get the perfect ratio of frosting to cake. Inevitably, these methods lead to unintentional sugar overload or a sad mound of frosting at your feet.
Here's a technique I learned on the interwebs about how to manage a monster cupcake without tears.
Step 1: Disrobe and Dismember
Remove all of the non-edible parts of your cupcake. This includes the wrapping and whatever plastic whirligigs have been embedded.
