Cupcake challenge

I conducted a vanilla cupcake side-by-side comparison of Magnolia’s vs CrumbsMagnolia's little beauty beckoned to me from behind the glass case adorned with it's tiny flower made of sugar and it's decadent swirl of icing. But don’t be fooled, the taste wasn’t there. The cake was grainy and lacked moisture, and the icing tasted too sugary and overpowered the cake. 
On to Crumbs. My humble and unassuming little gem was hiding behind the bedazzled colossal giants Crumbs is known for. The sweetness of the icing was balanced with a butteriness and the cake was moist and light yet firm enough to support the icing. Crumbs brought it! But just to be fair, I will return to Magnolia's to try their other flavors.  

Here's a quick animation I whipped up. Give it a "Like" on You Tube.

A fresh batch of fat-free, no-calorie cupcakes just came out of the oven. My secret ingredients include: 1 cup of iMac, 1 tsp of Adobe Illustrator, and a dash of internet. Have a taste:
