The Best Way to Eat a Cupcake (in my opinion) by Sweet Dani B

If I recall correctly, I picked up this fab foodie “trick” from my friend Molly, (a stylist on the Martha Stewart Show) many, many moons ago. Its a delicious approach to cupcake eating that garners attention any time people notice me doing it…

My friends might seem all “what the?!” but I am all business when it comes to eating cupcakes! Heed this advice…

Follow these 6 easy steps to enjoy your cupcake the balanced and yum way I have been enjoying them for years!
