The Evolution of Man, Cupcakes

I don't want to get too deep here (my shallow reputation is important and far-reaching), but we, as a human race, are voyeurs. We are all only a pair of binoculars away from becoming full-fledged stalkers. Maybe it's related to the "stalk your kill" concept, I don't know. I don't pretend to be smart, okay? We have, however, evolved into creatures that like to look at things: Victoria's Secret catalogues, car wrecks, Facebook pictures of that guy you met that one time at that thing. And why? Well duh! It's cus it's fun y'all. Told you I didn't want to get too deep.

Let's make this more interesting (i.e., all about me). Our natural voyeuristic attitude is exactly why you visit CupcakesOMG! Well, that, and the opportunity to see the latest fashions I'm donning, like these babies:

Yes, those are my feet

Maybe you like cupcakes, maybe you love cupcakes, maybe you tell me to my face you hate cupcakes more than you hate Karl Rove...I DON'T KNOW! Regardless, you like to eat cupcakes. Don't lie to me!!!!!! It's a sad truth, but unfortunately, you're not me, thus you're not readily armed with a stash of cupcakes, so while you may may want to chow down on a delicious chocolate cupcake topped with strawberry buttercream, alas, you are left sad and lonely, exposing who you truly are.

Which brings me to the real subject of my post: How great is Flickr?! Does everyone have an account? Do you know what it is?? It's basically a free photohosting site, where you can post your pictures and browse through everyone else's! See what I did there...voyeurism...success!! I'm often asked where I find the cupcakes I send out to my loyal "Daily Cupcake" listserv. I also often tell this people to "Go to hell!! Go straight to hell with you!" as a true lady never reveals her secrets. But today, I feel generous and thus inclined to share with you some of my favorite Flickr accounts.

Members join this group (also a favorite blog of mine) and upload their pictures to share with other cupcake aficianados. Example: French Toast Cupcake

This woman is what Martha Stewart wishes she could be. Are you kidding me?! And it's not just cupcakes either, she also makes Oreo Truffles, macarons, and rainbow pancakes! Example: Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcakes

Vanilla Cupcakes drizzled in vanilla frosting, topped with a raspberry
preserve-covered ferrer rocher candy and sprinkled with white chocolate pieces

Lindsay lives in Canada--her cupcake/cake catering business is probably the only reason I'd consider moving there. She does amazing things with cake and icing. Bonus Tip--she also has an ice cream blog!! Example: Hello Kitty Cupcakes

Next time you find yourself craving a cupcake, visit some of these Flickr galleries. Will it make your hankering worse? Absolutely. But it will satiate your evolutionary need to stalk your kill. Why do you think we find those Hello Kitty cupcakes so appealing, hmmm...?

I am not ashamed to admit that I am obsessed with cupcakes. All of my family, friends, and students know this. Naturally, I enjoy stalking your blog and living vicariously through you and your cupcake escapades. How's that for voyeuristic?!

BTW, do you have to be a circus performer to wear those insane shoes? They look like stilts!
