  1. Yes, there’s been a cupcake craze in the US over the past year or two — it started in NYC, and has apparently spread throughout the country. (You may be interested to know, Chris, that a cupcake boutique has opened in Harvard Sq, next to Tealuxe [was that there in your time?] and opposite the Coop. For really good cupcakes, though — and possible political theorist sightings — the place to go is Kick-Ass Cupcakes in Davis)

  2. Not your imagination.

    If you’d like to see the worst excesses, visit Angel (of Isilington – where else?) and seek out The Cupcake Shop, where you can purchase individual cupcakes at £3.50 a go.

    You’ll have to fight your way past Guardian-reading upper middle class 40somethings and indie kids dressed like it’s 1924 first though.

  3. Speaking as a Guardian-reading professional middle-class 30-something, who was disappointed that an online “what lesbian stereotype are you?” didn’t return the verdict “1920s lesbian”, I am actually quite pleased by what seems to me to be the cupcake boom going on around me, though I have never visited The Cupcake Shop at the Angel, it is true.

  4. Well, I just discovered that I’m the “typical lesbian”. Which I guess makes me the lesbian everywoman…

  5. Cupcakes are a big thing for weddings nowadays. We just got married back in February (what a strange place to tell a couple of friends that news…) and so we found out that there’s a fashion for a multi-tier tower of cupcakes instead of a multi-tiered cake, although we had the latter.
