Sweet, small, and stylish – what is there not to love about cupcakes? From the moment Carrie and Miranda devoured their cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery on Sex in the City, the cupcake trend took off. More than ten years later, it is safe to say that it is now no longer a trend, but rather an indulgence that is here to stay.
The individual size of a cupcake gives you just enough to satisfy a craving and the diversity of its decoration makes it perfect for any occasion. These elements, along with others, make cupcakes a perfect dessert, and many people agree. We are seeing the cupcake love everywhere as people opt for these mini cakes over the traditional larger ones. They are seen as substitutes for wedding cakes, stacked as decorative treat tiers at baby showers, and as the centerpiece of many themed parties.
But it doesn’t just extend to parties and deserts. We are also seeing plenty of programming centered around cupcakes, including the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars and TLC’s DC Cupcakes.
It seems as though cupcakes are everywhere, and we definitely don’t object! Just look at our Spring 2012 Sweets Shop Collection!
