As I wandered around the stalls of Kingston Kitchen on Sunday it was clear that the cupcake craze had hit Jamaica! Yaaaay!! What's not to love about cupcakes? - They're cute, convenient and clean. Cupcakes have been around for decades (History of Cupcakes HERE), but they have sparked a pop culture trend in the culinary world which has lead to bakeries, cookbooks, magazines and blogs being devoted specially to miniature creations. As the saying goes "Good things come in small packages" Petite is definitely in!
