Eating Cupcakes

i wasn't sure where to put this topic but here looks good. so a few days ago the topic of eating a cupcake came to light when i noticed someone eating it the sandwich way. in other words they peeled off the liner took off the bottom half like an english muffin and made a sandwich using the icing as the filling. so i began to wonder how do you eat a cupcake?

  1. I peel off the liner and take off the bottom half. Then sometimes I'll eat the cupcake the sandwich way and sometimes I'll eat the bottom half first, then the top half with the frosting.

    1. I eat the frosting and take a bite of the cake. Then ditch the rest of the cake.

      1. Funny you mention this; I just saw this "cupcake hack" animation last week:

        I can't wait to get my hands on a cupcake now. :) I've always just eaten it the usual way, getting icing on my nose and fingers. ;p

            It wasn't a problem years ago, before cupcake shops started putting towers of icing on standard cupcakes. The ratio has gone way too far. Don't egg me wrong, I like icing.

        1. Remove paper, make two vertical cuts to yield cupcake quarters. Eat one of those. Give or throw away the rest.

          1. Cupcakes are not my preferred food... but if you give me one I'll take the paper off then nibble my way around the edges to get a little bit of frosting with each bite.
