Happy Thursday everyone! It looks like we’ve finally come to everybody’s favorite landmark holiday between Halloween and Thanksgiving – November 10: National Vanilla Cupcake Day. Thinking about frosting and cake gave me an idea for this week’s Eating Styles poll: are you a cake person or a frosting person?
No one’s saying you can’t be both a cake person and a frosting person, but let’s face it: most people have a strong proclivity towards one side or the other. In my experience, there are two main classes of people. First, there are the frosting lovers. For these guys, cake is an excuse to get at their true obsession: frosting. These are the guys who search for that one piece of cake where the frosting-to-cake ratio is equal, or even skewed in the frosting direction. If it were socially acceptable, they would eat that silky, sugary manna of life by the spoonful. Sometimes they do it anyway after their roommates go to bed, hiding in the closet under the stairs at 3AM and then destroying the evidence afterwards. Some people might do that.
The other class is the “not too much” frosting people. For these guys, frosting is great but can be overpowering in mass quantities. Combined with cake, frosting makes a delicious, delicious dessert, but too much is just too much.
