According to Donna Diegel of

“Hello Cupcake! Have you noticed that cupcakes are all the rage lately? It’s like a delicious virus that’s spreading all over the blogosphere, tempting bakers with cute cupcakes in all shapes and sizes. Cupcake cookbooks have taken over the baking section of mega bookstores and made their way to home bookshelves. Many professional websites, hobby blogs and bakeries have done away with writing about cookies, cakes and pies and concentrate soley on cupcakes now. “Cupcakeries” have radically changed the way we think of traditional bakeries, and entire empires have been built on cupcakes alone!”
