chris’s corner: let them eat cake… correctly!

Please tell me y’all have seen that picture of Honey Boo Boo at the sprinkles cupcake ATM machine thing…

I die!

This lovely gem of reality TV magic brought back a childhood memory. No, not the hours and hours of baton twirling practice in my hopes of an Ultimate Grand Supreme title, but of cupcakes. But this sugar-hungry middle school kid in a small NC town learned the BEST way to eat a cupcake!

No doubt, cupcakes are the JAM, but that first bite often results with icing on your nose and once you get to the last couple bites it starts to fall apart and inevitably some of that deliciousness ends up on the floor.

Here are my steps to the efficient way to eat a cupcake:

1. Unwrap completely.

2. Slice the cupcake horizontally about a 1/4-1/2 inch below the icing.


3. Take the resulting bottom piece, flip it over and place it on top of icing.

4. You’re now left with an adorable little cupcake/icing sandwich!
