Cupcake of the day~ they’re good for us. Yep.

October 8, 2010

I can’t find the source for these adorable cupcake liners. But they certainly would making baking even more fun!

Cupcakes are good for you. Zip on over to Cakealicious if you doubt me. They’re touting the health benefits of cupcakes.

Here’s what they say and I can’t disagree, as long as I don’t look too closely at their tongue-in-cheek logic. (It’s as good a justification as anything….)

  • Over the past few decades, portion sizes have been quickly increasing and taking much of the blame for expanding waistlines. Choosing a cupcake is the best way to stay in shape by indulging in this individual sized piece of cake made just for you.
  • Cupcakes encourage you to drink more milk. The best known attribute of milk is its calcium content, which is very high. Calcium is important in bone health and is important for children, whose bones are still growing. For the prevention of osteoporosis, a high calcium intake is also recommended especially for women.
  • Cupcakes have been known to create a hyper delight in people of all ages. This behavior will cause you to shake, dance, jump and run. This can benefit you by making you feel and look younger, improve your sleep,improve your strength, improve your flexibility and increase your confidence!
  • Cupcakes are just plain ole’ good for you! Why? Because they always put a smile on your face! Research has proven happiness can provide a longer, healthier life. {Who can argue with that?}


My favorite cupcakes of all–red velvet with cream cheese frosting. Yummy!
