Throwback Thursday ~ 2000’s, The Era Of The Cupcake
Although last week we came to the end of our series for cooking through the decades, this week I thought it would be fun to focus on one of the majors fads of the 2000’s. Nope, not Facebook or Pinterest. 🙂 We’re talking about cupcakes! Cupcakes are such a big thing now. They have even begun taking the place of large wedding cakes and party cakes. Although they’ve been around for over a hundred years, cupcakes have become super popular in the past 10 years. Entire blogs and cookbooks are dedicated to the world of cupcakes. There are popular television shows from The Cupcake Wars to 2 Broke Girls, which revolve around cupcake baking. Right here in Minnesota, our own Nadia Cakes bakery in Maple Grove, won the Cupcake Wars twice! Below is a photo gallery of cupcakes from all over, a lot of them found on Pinterest. It’s amazing how much creativity you can find in a cupcake. Enjoy!
