On Sunday I made some mini cupcakes for Fathers Day. As I took this photo I wondered for a second, has the cupcake thing been overdone? It seems everywhere I look I see them. And don't get me wrong because I adore them. I eat them by the truckloads. I just wonder what it is that has recently captivated us all. A few years back there wasn't a book about cupcakes, now they saturate the food sections of bookstores. So what is it that's changed?
