Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Everywhere: Help Me, Alan!

Since when did cupcakes become a major food group? Since Sex and the City, that's when.  I've nothing against a cupcake a year or two, but these seemingly insidious little snack cakes are marching over the landscape like little frosted storm troopers.  Two cupcakes stores in Chelsea Market?  I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the food mall's name changed to Cupcake Market any day now.

I was going to further document the phenomen, but then--mirabile dictu!--Alan Rickman strolled by, and my mind instantly turned to thoughts of  a very different sort of treat.
