A Cookie and a Cupcake
I’ve tried Georgetown Cupcakes in DC and Magnolia Bakery in NY but I think these cupcakes might just be better. The first time P.S. bought them for dessert was amazing because 5 of us devoured a dozen cupcakes in less than 15 minutes, just after a heavy meal. I think E.G. might have had 3 or 4 herself, which is why we’re friends. We had a Taiwanese visitor at that meal who seemed to have nothing but disdain for our culture (he kept scoffing at our stories about getting drunk and stupid college pranks) and I think our final act of gluttony (shoving cupcakes in our mouths as fast as we could) helped to complete his picture of greedy, irresponsible Americans. As a Taiwanese American, I guess I have noticed that Americans are pretty good at shoving large amounts of food in their mouth… I do it all the time.
