The Ultimate Cupcake Post

  Cupcakes. If you didn't know already, I have a slight obsession with the little carb bombs. Proof of fact: I own 3 cupcake-exclusive cookbooks and a cupcake courier, have been to almost every cupcake shop within reasonable distance of my residences, wrote a 20 page paper on them for my Food & Culture class, and have already designed the logo for my own shop if I ever get around to having one.
  Till then, I'll be baking at home. I've been experimenting with different cakes, but my focus is mostly on the frosting. Buttercream, cream cheese, and ganache bases; fresh fruit, extract, and liquor flavorings. I'm also a fan of filled cupcakes - the "surprise" in the middle just makes the process of eating them so much more enjoyable.
  It might be the collateral of the explosion of cupcake boutiques that is to blame for my appetite, but it's also fair to say that the nostalgic, I-used-to-eat-these-back-in-the-good-old-days-of-my-childhood association cupcakes engender is what makes them appealing as well. But hey, why are we questioning such a harmless liking? If you really wanted to know everything there is to, well, know about cupcakes, you might as well read my paper. 

But if you aren't in the mood to read, per usual, here are all the pictures I have taken in my history of digital cameras of the handheld munchies. Please note that I am not responsible for water damage on your keyboard, so watch your drooling. Enjoy!
