I'm over cupcakes

There. I said it.

They were having a moment in the US, but that moment is gone. I'm over them.

Everyone is. That's why their bakeries are always full of cupcakes and devoid of people.

No offense, OP, but your cupcakes are dry and tasteless. Nobody ever likes your cupcakes.

Brilliant zeitgeist update from 2005. Thanks OP. Any more pithy observations from your crypt?

I was never UNDER cupcakes. Too much frosting, too expensive, and too sweet. The best thing that happened to cupcakes is the hack when you rip the frosted top off it, flip it over so the frosting is facing the ripped side, and eat that way so you can enjoy frosting with almost every bite like you do with a piece of layer cake.

Or, just have some regular layer cake.

NYC has Magnolia cupcakes which are so sweet you get a headache just looking at them. They also taste terrible 5 minutes after you take them from the store--you have to eat them immediately to enjoy them.

We used to have Crumbs, with huge cupcakes, but that went out of business early as the cupcake craze ended.

In Soho, Georgetown Cupcakes had some of the most delicious cupcakes I've ever tasted (I assume the store's originally from the DC area), but the pandemic killed that store and it is no more.

OP, what's your stance on sliders and molecular gastronomy?

Related but not: I like muffins. I am a Californian, veganish (I don't question the fats/oils in breads etc.), organic etc etc. And I am pretty seduced and regularly get fooled by "muffins" that are really cupcakes. Starbucks is a case in point and I regularly lie to myself and ..."oh, and give me a blueberry muffin" and then eat it and think, "this is just cake..."

So, it's more than just "bran", but to me muffins should be muffins and not cupcakes.

[quote] NYC has Magnolia cupcakes

Magnolia had the worst cupcakes ever.

Take it from this fat whore who has scarfed down several Krispy Kremes in one sitting: Magnolia frosting is obnoxiously, tooth aching sweet. But the cake part is dry, like eating sand.

The original store on Bleecker Street used to be a pet store. Every so often when I walk by and see a line around the block, I want to yell, “I hope they cleaned all the bird out of that place before they opened.”

The only reason they are popular is because they were mentioned on an episode of Sex & the City TWENTY YEARS AGO. Fuck Sex & the City for perpetuating those nasty cupcakes.

Cupcakes are overrated and usually covered with sickening frosting. Like R15, I’d rather have a muffin.

I was over red velvet cake right after eating my first slice. Hyped like it was some flavorful thing when it’s just sugar and food coloring. I couldn’t taste the cocoa.

Cupcakes these days have towering piles of sickly sweet icing. More icing than cake. My mother made them when I was a kid and they were moist with a small dollop of buttercream spread on top.

Me too,OP. I'm back to Chocolate Eclairs, which always been my favorite dessert food. I don't know why I strayed.

R27 he's saying rip off the top, then turn it upside down and mash it back down onto the rest of the cupcake.

How do you feel about chocolate croissants, OP?

by Anonymousreply 36May 28, 2023 2:12 PM

R11 Cinnamon rolls ? Really ? We've time travelled back to 1985 ?

I remember when cookies were the big thing in the late 70s and early 80s - store fronts opening with 'home baked cookies' you can smell all over the streets.

Then croissants were the big thing in the early - mid 80s. All these French-themed cafes and bakeries started popping up making croissants and other French pastries for morning coffee (there was one known distributor from VT, who got their products from a Canadian bakery, which was supplying most of these places). Then Burger King, Dunkin Donuts and Supermarkets started selling their idea of an Americanized croissant - and the French cafes closed down.

In 1985 came the flood of 'cinnamon buns' - with TJ Cinnamons and Mrs Powells opening everywhere (franchised).. That lasted a couple of years.

After that was the explosion of rotisserie chicken with Boston Market, Roger Clemmons and Kenny Rogers taking over the country by storm. Once the big markets started offering a whole rotisserie chicken for $1.99, that killed the chicken franchises in the mid 90s.

And then it was the cupcake wars by the late 90s - I remember Rosie O'Donnell pushing Magnolia Bakery on her talk show (1996-2002). A restaurant in my area was doing jumbo cupcakes back then for $5 (feeds two). They still do them (though they've dropped in popularity) and now they sell for $15 each.

Now it seems like the focus is back on the cookie storefronts - nearly a dozen have popped up in my area (including the debut of Crumbl which everyone seems to hate).

According to my nutritionist, all you need to do is stuff one in a blender with just a pint of buttercream frosting and then hit "purée," and... voilà! You've made a delicious and healthy breakfast shake!

R31, I make my own baklava and I omit the final syrup soak. I love the buttery filo with layers of nuts but the syrup makes it nasty.

Dry Baklava.
