Because they’re so darn cute! Not to mention scrumptious. In fact, so popular is the cupcake that small artisan cupcake bakeries, creating amazing gourmet cupcakes have begun to pop up across America. If not already one in your neighborhood, one is soon to be coming... ?
A recent article in the New York Times asked “Will Cupcakes Be the Next Krispy Kreme?” Ever been tempted by that HOT sign –especially on a cold, grey day?!! Cupcakes have a similar appeal...who isnt tempted by an adorable, yummy, personal little cake of their own. They not only satisfy any sweet tooth out there with the endless flavors, and varieties, but equally as important in their appeal -is the way they make us feel. Going back to the 1950’s when Hostess Cupcakes became a mainstay in American homes cupcakes began to win hearts nationwide. Their journey into families all over the world has continued to our day. The cupcakes our parents had when they were young, they made for us, today....we make them for our families, and so goes the story of the cupcake. The nostalgia of the way we enjoyed cupcakes when we were young is now something that we can easily repeat for our friends and family. As life becomes ever more busy, anyone can take a moment to enjoy a sweet cupcake....like Americans have been doing for decades. Cupcake bakeries may be popping up for plenty of good reasons, and I believe-they are here to stay.... be are here to stay.
