Chocolate, vanilla, or some other delicious concoction? Filling or no filling? Classic flavors or one of the more exotic confections? Fill in the correct circle with a number two pencil. This exam counts for two-thirds of your final grade…
“Use this, throw the other one away.”
“What was wrong with the old recipe?”
“Nothing, this one is just better.”
Okay, so you have your quality assurance. That’s great. Meanwhile, you’re standing in the shop in front of the 15+ flavors in the case, looking at this post on your phone in hopes of getting some flavor-picking assistance, all the while trying to ignore the awkward mess in the corner that is Obi-wan. Or maybe you’re getting married and want the six best flavors to make your day perfect and give everyone something else to focus on when your drunk aunt makes a scene during the reception. Because you know she will.
My advice is to start simple. Chocolate, vanilla, or other. Filling or no filling (Obi-wan can at least tell you which cupcakes have filling, so don’t be afraid to ask him). Do you want to play it safe with a more classic cupcake flavor or are you feeling adventurous? Does this sound familiar?
If all else fails, just pick something. Go outside your comfort zone. Spin the wheel and see what you get. Or pick a couple extra cupcakes for later. Or for now. We won’t judge you. Remember, you can always come back. We’ll be here, happy and excited to see you, just like your dog when you come home from work. Tails wagging and everything.
