The Cupcake that Saved Pittsburgh
How did this all happen? Somehow Mikes musings on two new cupcakeries in town, evolved into the dubbing of the infamous Cupcake Class* .. eventually this lead to cupcake literalism in the media and eventually to cupcake unhistory . All signs of just how hyperbolic cupcakism has become.
(For the record, my vote for the best, and best value, cupcakes in town: Paddy Cake Bakery in Bloomfield. Not to be a Luddite, but never trust a bakery that has a website is my motto.)
But just to keep John A. true to his word, here is a token cupcake post. Below is a graph of bakeries per capita for the 30 largest metro areas in the country. I have put my data and annotations for this on swivel.
* Just to give the Cupcake Class its proper provenance. The term is clearly the step-child of Mike's Custard Class, the original use of which is lost to the ether because of Mike's switch away from haloscan commenting on his blog. but again, its all his fault.
