Why are cupcakes so trendy? [moved from Los Angles board]

Kishari | Aug 21, 200610:57 PM     38

I hate to be the cranky one, but I just don't get why cupcakes in general are so trendy these days. I get it for a shower or party, because a dessert needs to be easy to transport and serve a lot of people. But why is it now the must-have thing for chowish types as well as muggles? Is it because they're portable? That you get a higher frosting ratio than a regular slice of cake? Because you can get your very own decorations and don't have to fight for them? Because you can eat them with your hands?

No one really needs to reply to this, I just thought I'd put my puzzlement out into the universe. Thank you. :)
