I was reading this blog post "Battle of The Cupcakes" and it got me thinking about how cupcakes are everywhere now! And I'm not complaining about the popularity of cupcakes, I love them as much as the next girl! But I'm just so curious as to how they shot to fame/popularity. I remember the days when I had them packed in my school lunches and you could get those stick on decorations of Disney characters (do you remember those?).
So once again Ive been having a little twitter discussion about it and some thoughts on the topic were...Sex And The City? perhaps Martha Stewart, or was it the craft/handmade revival?
So what are your thoughts on it, did you love cupcakes before they were cool?
EDIT: From the comments I'm getting, It seems like cupcakes have always been big. Perhaps its only in Australia that I'm noticing such a massive surge in popularity!
EDIT 2: Wow, in Spain cupcakes aren't popular or really know at all.
