I’m just going to say it. I prefer a slice of cake over a cupcake.
I know it’s not cool since cupcakes are all fashionable. But the reality is that cupcakes are not easy to eat. Frosting gets on your face. Crumbs fly everywhere. Plus maybe it’s just me, but there always seems to be some residual cake that sticks to the paper cups thereby cheating me out of a bit of the baked good.
I’ve gotten to the point where I eat a cupcake with a fork.
Don’t get me wrong, if someone offers me a cupcake, I’m not going to pass it up. The thing is that given the choice between a fancy cupcake and a fancy piece of cake, I’ll take the cake.
