Cupcakes are the perfect dessert. They can be savored privately or shared enthusiastically. They can be dressed up as a wedding cake or neatly tucked into a lunch box. And it doesn't matter if you're four or 40 -- cupcakes are fun and delicious.
Then there's the subject of beauty. You have to admire the splendor of cupcakes. They are delectable miniature cakes with soft interiors, tapered sides and sweet frosting crowns. And the flavor combinations for both cake and frosting are limited only by your imagination.
While writing this book, I baked a mammoth number of cupcakes. As I ventured out to my neighbors' homes -- feeling a lot like Donna Reed as I carried huge trays of cupcakes -- I heard a frequent and familiar question: "What makes a cupcake a cupcake and not a muffin? They look the same." It's a good question, and I answered without hesitation. A muffin is dense and hearty and doesn't have a frosting. A cupcake, on the other hand, is light and cakelike, and is usually topped with a mound of frosting or a drizzle of icing.
As far as I'm concerned, cupcakes are delightful and not just for their versatility. They remind us of childhood, when we could eat a whole cupcake and not have to share. As adults, we can eat the whole thing and feel satisfied without guilt or calories (not too many, anyway!). Is it any wonder that cupcakes are making a timely resurgence into our homes and local bakeries? It's because they're adored by all. And, as I said, they're the perfect dessert.
