Rave: Cupcakes

Jenny Krane, Staff Writer

Cupcakes, the cute and tasty dessert you can take on the go, create very little mess and bake in a portion size that satisfies hunger perfectly. Cute in appearance, with little dollops of icing and in colorful cups, cupcakes conveniently require no utensils. Shows like “Cupcake Wars” and “DC Cupcakes” inspire an increasingly competitive field, improving these mini cakes in quality, taste, and appearance.
