All across America, in major cities nationwide, there has been an outcry, a major clamoring, and a “waiting-on-line-around-the-block” type of fixation for cupcakes. Sprinkles in Los Angeles is charging an arm and a leg – or at least as much as you would pay for a mocha latte with extra cream – for just one of their cupcakes. At Billy’s Bakery in New York, people are braving the New York summer and lining up, disregarding the blazing sun. And even Martha Stewart recently sent her staff to search for the best cupcakes in the nation.
