The Bacon Cupcake Compendium

What is it about a cupcake that fills our hearts with so much joy and happiness? Not to mention, our mouths… Pictures of cupcakes are like pictures of babies and puppies. They make you ooh and aah, even if you don’t particularly care for babies or puppies. You just can’t avoid the jaw-dropping effect. Cupcake. Jaw drop. It’s hard-wired into us.

A cupcake makes you want to stuff it in your face AND nibble at it with delicate, dainty little bites, all at the same time. Few foods have this dual effect. That’s because they make you want to consume them as quickly as is humanly possible, AND make them last as long as is humanly possible. Call it the Cupcake Conundrum.
