Cupcakes all the way

The Food Channel recently published a list of the top food trends of the decade (2000-2009). Interested? Thought so, here you go:

1. Sushi
2. Bacon
3. Cupcakes
4. Sliders
5. Gourmet Burgers made with Kobe or Angus Beef
6. Superfruits such as Acai, Pomegranate and Blueberry
7. Oils, such as olive oils and truffle oils
8. Whole grains
9. Artisan foods, particularly in breads, cheeses and dark chocolates
10. Coffees, teas

Obviously, #3 is my favorite, although I will say the RD in me is happy to see things like # 7 and 8 on the list.

Everyone knows my true love for cupcakes. I make it a point to visit a cupcake bakery in most every city I travel to. I have come to prefer them over regular cake (and think that wedding cupcakes are perfect!). In fact, I baked a batch of red velvet this weekend, and have been enjoying several on a daily basis (they’re little guys). There’s just something that feels special about cupcakes. A treat. A cute little delicacy.

So why all the cupcake talk? Because apparently McDonald’s is unveiling a line of cupcakes (named after New York burroughs of course) in their Germany stores. What!? Thanks Micky Dees. Ruin yet another great culinary item. You can check it out here (but probably best if you can read german.. haha).
