The Cupcake/Muffin Conundrum
Think of what the result might be if a coconut cream pie and a cupcake had a love child. Mmmm-hm. The Perkin's coconut cream mammoth muffin. Pure evil with cream cheese frosting on top. It took me two days to eat it. I don't think I ever will have one again, though, I may not survive the experience to tell about it. It was delicious. And evidence that the line between cupcake and muffin has become so very wide and blurry that the terms are totally interchangeable. I need a Venn diagram. Or a pie chart. That takes into consideration regional variations. If Marie Antoinette were to ask, I'd have to say in this instance I would prefer to have the cake rather than eat it.
