Down With Cupcakes

By

We thought we were cupcake haters, but were sugar and spice compared to cookbook author Carolynn Carreo: Cupcakes by definition are not good. As far as sweets go, I would rather have a good cookie, ice cream, fruit desserts, dark chocolate, milk chocolate: basically anything else but a cupcake. But truly, without exaggeration or irony, Id say that though Magnolia has the cache for reasons having to do with consumer stupidity and the power of television (e.g. Sex and the City) their cupcakes are probably the worst in town. And dont get her started on Crumbs. [Whats Eating Carolynn via Serious Eats]
