Organic, made with real fruit, served in a biodegradable cup, and sold in a solar powered cart! It is practically a vote for Al Gore with frosting on it. These virtuous cupcakes will soon be available at a cupcake cart outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art here in NYC. The cart is supposed to generate about a hundred thousand dollars a year for NYC—presumably more than the hot dog carts that were kicked out to make way for it.
This is part of the city’s plan to offer “healthy options.” Because really, what is healthier than a cupcake? Maybe Bloomberg will make Cake & Shake post the nutritional information on the “Heaven Split,” which is a banana cupcake with chocolate hazelnut mousse and caramel frosting.
I can’t wait to see Jenny Humphrey not eat one.
