Cupcake Bubble?

Beautiful cupcake from the Cupcakery.

The internet seems to be a buzz with a possible impending cupcake bubble meltdown. OK, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but a few people have been sending me some articles about how the cupcake trend is cooling off.

I’m not sure what the life cycle of a trend usually is, but surely if a cupcake bakery has been around for close to a decade, it’s past the ‘trendy’ stage? (There was a cute cupcake shop that opened up on Denman several years before I moved to Toronto that was all the rage back then)

Trend or not, I love anything cake so if the cupcake bubble does indeed burst, I hope an equally sweet and delectable confection fad takes it’s place.

Here are some of the articles about the cupcake bubble:
