The cupcake market

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone! 

 

So, what's your take on cupcakes?

 

Do you think that the cupcake craze is just a fad? Or do you think that cupcakes will be around for a while?

 

If you're a business owner, how well are your cupcakes selling?

 

Thanks for your feedback!

I don't love cupcakes.  They are supposed to be "finger" food, but they the way icing has morphed into giant swirls on top, who could eat them without a fork?

 

I like mini cakes (bundtlettes, petit fours, 3" rounds) but just not in cupcake form.  It is hard to call them a passing fad when they have been around for decades, but the idea of a cupcake-only shop may be just a trend.

I was thinking the same thing...... it's the shop that may be the trend.

(I do LOVE cupcakes, and even with a small amount of icing on my cupcakes, I find myself eating cupcakes with a fork at home. I thought that I was the only one.)

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something
