There seems to be a flurry of cupcake shops all over the place from New York to Malaysia. They are hotter than java joints these days.. I am not sure how exactly it started but I supposed the heightened trend was spurred on by Sex and the City at Magnolia Bakery on Bleecker Street, where Carrie and Miranda devoured some delicious looking cupcakes in the series. The magic of television! Anyway who knows!
Cupcake revival – with beautiful frostings I must admit is a sight to behold. It is very feminine , a perfect accompaniment for a girlie gathering! Who would pass an afternoon tea with beautiful scrumptious buttery cupcakes? There are several notable places for cupcakes and I have listed them here.
