Cupcakes are the baked wildlife of New York City. There are as many species of NYC cupcakes as they're fauna and flora in the Amazon jungle (or it seems that way).

@tsarstepan,
Have you found any worth getting excited about? I tried them from a few of the "famous" places when they got trendy in New York about six (?) years ago. Magnolia, etc.

Very disappointing. They all looked so adorable and cute and and and tasted <shrug>

@ehBeth,
To be honest. I've only tried a couple of places. They look much better then they taste. Crumbs, Magnolias, and Billy's Bakery.

@tsarstepan,
They've snuck in something new. They're called muffins, and if muffin isn't preceded by the word English, it's the most gawdawful, calorie infested piece of cake you ever want to wrap your lips around.

@tsarstepan,
Yes, it's become the art of the cupcake and not the edibility of the cupcake.

I speak only from afar as I haven't tried any of the recent cupcake fare.
I figure a really good cake recipe would work with cupcakes, but maybe I'm just ignorant on that.

I like some english muffins, some muffins, some biscuits and not others, some cupcakes, some cakes. I do pose the question of the art structure of the cupcake possibly being in inverse ratio to the actual tastiness.

My sweet little neighbors baked cupcakes for our bake sale a few weeks ago. She called them Fairy Cakes. They cut the top off of the cup cake, scoop a little of the cake out of the bottom and fill it with buttercream...then cut the top in half and lay the halves on top at an angle to make them look like wings....they are pretty and DELICIOUS.

@tsarstepan,
Now that cupcakes are about over as a fad, time for me to start making them.
