Let Them Eat Cupcakes!

Have you noticed the craze about CUPCAKES? There are cupcake bakeries popping up all over the country, more and more cupcake design books and cookbooks are in stores, and you know they are big and soon to be bigger when Martha Stewart devotes an entire week and a contest to cupcakes. What do you think of all the sudden fuss over cupcakes? Is it warranted or overblown by fashion setters?

I was looking through Martha's contest pages and I found many outstanding entries, both elegant ones and whimsical ones. There were more than two thousand entries! Here are some of my favorites. Which ones would you vote for?
