how to properly eat a cupcake according to jilian...

As promised I have a special treat for you all today...a guest post from my frequently mentioned pal Jil (no, I am not spelling her name wrong...it's Jilian...and there is only one L...so it is Jil...not Jill). So without further ado....heeeere's Jily!

Jilian's Cupcake Tutorial:
Only YOU can properly eat cupcakes...


I embrace the anal side of myself and am coming to terms with the controlling side too. Please, eat cupcakes as shown in the following steps-or just don't ever eat one in front of me!


Step #1: Peel the wrapper off said cupcake (I suggest a Sprinkle's cupcake...since now no other cupcake compares and therefore should not exist, sorry mom!)



Step #2: Remove the top from the bottom carefully, as to not smear the frosting!

Step #3: Set the top aside.

Step #4: Eat the cakey bottom.



Step #5: Ohhhh...here is where it gets good...pick up the top carefully...again careful not to smear the frosting...and enjoy!



Step #6: Oooooo...the frosting...



Step #7: Mmmmm...



Step #8: Mmm...



Step #9: GOOD!!!


This is not something to take lightly. You are clearly eating the wrong kind of cupcake if you don't take the time to savor and enjoy it as shown above!



And that my friends is Jil...

That is a very different way to eat a cupcake! I really wish I had one right now so I could try it.

Alexandria said...

It is...yet she thinks it is totally normal. She is weird...but ya gotta love her!

They are SO good...we drive four hours to get them...and yes I do realize how sad that is!

If you don't have one by where you live go and buy the mix at Williams and Sonoma...it is allllmost as good!

Sasha Liz said...

Aww... I don't have a sprinkles :(
But I do have one called Cupcake Couture!
It's pretty darn good.

Williams Sonoma mix... I'll remember that.

Alexandria said...

Oh...sad...I think only California has them! Oooh Cupcake Couture? Awesome name, they must have awesome cupcakes!

Yep the mix is pretty good. The vanilla and red velvet are the best and they give you the icing receipe...scrum-diddly-ump-tious!

Almost perfect... I usually skip step #4. Haha!

amanda leeann said...

do i want a cupcake now? yes.

did my use of "ya'll" give me away?

i am from TN, been here my whole life. southern girl, born and raised.

good luck on that term paper!

LOL..Ohh I shouldn't have looked at these again. Now I just want a cupcake..a Pumpkin one because it's early and I can justify eating that for breakfast..being it's semi-healthy!! Right? Ya that's right!

So..Note to Connie above.. Honey, I hear ya on the skipping #4. Trust me if it was anything BUT a Sprinkles Cupcake..I would do the same as I am not a cake girl. So in the case that Sprinkles is involved..you MUST consume ALL cupcake parts and pieces!

This is hilarious. I've never eaten a cupcake like this.. uhm, I just eat it.

Let me take this time to tell you how much I am jealous that you have a Sprinkles in the same state as you! Ugh Ugh UGH! When Vito and I were out in LA in May, we stopped by to try them and loved them, bragged about them to everyone. We ended up going back down before our flight left and got a dozen to bring home and share. I miss Sprinkles. 8(

Alexandria said...

Connie-You are hilar!

Amanda-No you didn't give yourself away...I was just curious!

Vanessa-I am with you I just eat the dang thing! I cannot imagine trying them once and then having to head to a far away state that was not blessed with Cupcake Mecca...sad! Like I said ladies it is all about the Sprinkle's mix at Williams Sonoma! Its GOOD!

MoreThanMyOwnLife said...

So would it be worse when I tell you not only do I not have Sprinkles, but I don't have Williams Sonoma to get the mix either?

Yeah, east coast SUCKS. End of story.

Alexandria said...

WHAT?! No Sprinkles AND no Williams & Sonoma...yeah I no longer want to switch houses with you! lol...

Look online...maybe you could find the mix!!
