The cupcake market

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone! 

 

So, what's your take on cupcakes?

 

Do you think that the cupcake craze is just a fad? Or do you think that cupcakes will be around for a while?

 

If you're a business owner, how well are your cupcakes selling?

 

Thanks for your feedback!

I don't love cupcakes.  They are supposed to be "finger" food, but they the way icing has morphed into giant swirls on top, who could eat them without a fork?

 

I like mini cakes (bundtlettes, petit fours, 3" rounds) but just not in cupcake form.  It is hard to call them a passing fad when they have been around for decades, but the idea of a cupcake-only shop may be just a trend.

I was thinking the same thing...... it's the shop that may be the trend.

(I do LOVE cupcakes, and even with a small amount of icing on my cupcakes, I find myself eating cupcakes with a fork at home. I thought that I was the only one.)
