tom scocca on why so many cupcakes being sold today are totally vile. (hint: too much frosting. like, WAY TOO MUCH.)
Read this earlier today and I totally agree. My mother and I have a constant battling of too much frosting. Her in the “use more!” camp and me firmly in a “thin coating to enhance the cake!” camp. This is also why I hate all these trendy effing cupcake places. First of all $4 for a motherfreacking cupcake? I’ll go home and make a whole batch of edible ones for that much. Secondly: I DO NOT LIKE CLOYINGLY SWEET CRAP STUCK TO THE ROOF OF MY MOUTH! Knock it off with the pound of frosting per cupcake thing already! Sheesh!
