They looked so colorful, and therefore delicious! It could be a mistake to equate colorful cupcakes with delicious cupcakes, but if the Wal-Mart powdered sugar mini donuts are any indication of the legitimacy of their baking "skillz," the cupcakes were probably not too shabby (for the $2.50 that they cost, that is).
Greg said he read something the other day that listed cupcakes and bubble tea as two food fads poised to fade into obscurity. I wouldn't be that heartbroken about cupcakes. Although delicious, part of their appeal is their aesthetics, and fancy cupcakes aren't the only thing that can fulfill my desire for good-looking (and hopefully yummy tasting) food. Bubble tea, on the other hand, I have been a fan of for years (before it became a fad - I feel snotty saying that, but meh), but it becoming a fad has only made it more readily available to me. So we'll see how that goes. If all else fails, California will always have bubble tea because there are just so. Many. Asians.
