The Baker’s Deception
We are all having the veil pulled over our eyes. Not by the government, or religion, or any of the other common sources of conspiracy theories. The people we need to look out for are bakers. They sell us products they claim are different, but from where I am looking appear to be the same. I fail to see just what exactly is the difference between a cupcake and a muffin… besides frosting.
a muffin is still something that’s relatively healthy. It’s not too sweet, is perhaps made with whole wheat flour, and is more likely to be loaded with fruit than candy. A muffin can also be savory instead of sweet. The texture is usually dryer and slightly denser than their cupcake cousins.
Cupcakes are, well, miniature cakes. They’re sweet by definition, coming in flavors like vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet. A cupcake is tender and rich with eggs and butter. They’re a dessert item, not an everyday breakfast food. And CUPCAKES ALWAYS HAVE FROSTING.
Frosting is the real defining feature. A drizzle of glaze is one thing, but once you put frosting on a muffin, it’s no longer a muffin in our mind.
