already the windows are dirty

I just learned from a feature story in BH&G that cupcakes "are easier for entertaining than other desserts."

Really?

Leaving aside the simplicity of a crisp or ice cream, what, pray tell, makes cupcakes so much easier than other desserts--cake in particular? Is it the fact that instead of pouring all the cake batter into one pan, you can instead go through the process of dividing the batter into a bunch of equal portions? Is it that instead of frosting one big cake, you can frost a bunch of little cakes, each of which will take almost as long to frost as the one big cake? Is it that instead of being able to eat the whole piece of cake, you can leave half of the cake stuck to the inside of the cupcake paper?

In the immortal words of Vonnegut, what a crock of doo-doo.
