We love cupcakes, don't you? But they can be messy little things. How do you eat them?
You can certainly use utensils. Forks can be helpful when splitting a cupcake with filling, for example. If you've ordered a jumbo cupcake—the kind meant to be shared among several people—you may cut the cupcake into wedges with a knife, wrapper and all, to divide it evenly.
A knife also comes in hand for a neat sandwich-style trick: cut a hefty slice from the bottom of the cupcake, place it on top of the frosting, and enjoy.
But we say that tidiness is not the most important thing to consider when eating a cupcake. Frosting on your nose? No problem. Savoring even the smallest crumbs in the wrapper? Go for it. Some things are meant to be messy.
