As if cupcakes weren't bad enough....



CAKE-CUPS??????????????



ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????



I might stop doing Dear ESB's and just focus on ridiculing the ridiculous press releases that keep hitting my inbox.

p.s. Hi! I'm home!

  1. ... so, basically, these are cheaper and less interesting verrines sold at a higher price because of the ludicrous name? Exchanging the French-cuisine overtones for bourbon glasses and hipster-chic trends?

    Yeeeeeah.

  2. admittedly, we did something similar to this for cheech's birthday. but in our defense, we called them trifles because, well, that's what they are.

  3. I actually don't think these look very tasty. Whether or not they are the new trend... I thought the first one was quinoa.

    welcome back.

  4. I have tried one of these, and the one I tried was very gross. A homemade trifle is lovely (and cute for a birthday, aw), but these seem like they'd often fall into the novelty-trumps-quality-ingredients territory that is really brutal in a dessert. Plus it looks like they're in pudding cups.

    1. To be honest, the "ZOMG she still doesn't know how to link!" responses are now officially more annoying and petty than Kate's actual posts.

  6. Sorry, but these taste fucking amazing. Plus, the guys who run the place are really nice.

  7. The ones in proper glasses look less stupid to me than cupcakes for an event like a wedding (sorry, but I despise the cupcake-as-a-wedding-cake thing, much as I might enjoy devouring a cupcake on the regular).

    I think perhaps they're more appropriate (and would be fun for) other types of parties, like showers, birthdays, etc, but I still think they're a small rung above cupcakes for weddings.

  8. This is crazy as a wedding dessert. It screams little-kid's-birthday-party to me. HOWEVER, I have totally had one (as a kid). It was called a "dirt cup" and consisted of crunched up oreos, chocolate pudding and gummy worms. I remember it to this day because...it was amazing.

  9. I make these, and have since I was little. We called them parfaits, trifles, etc. Though ours looked a little more appetizing... I guess it depends what you put in... They're really good to have around the house (I'm that person who knows she should have a small slice of cake, but can't resist taking a big slice, so individual sized portions are awesome) but I don't think I'd want them at a wedding... Especially if they look like that!

  10. Okay, the trifles in the plastic cup look like something for a kid's party but the ones in real glasses seem nice.

  11. So... a mini trifle? That thing that's been around for ages now and everyone groans when your Aunt brings one for holiday dinner.

    Nothing is new, nothing is exciting anymore.

  12. Up next: they'll be in mini mason jars. Mark my words!

  13. Sometimes I really don't mind not eating gluten.

  14. One of our cake tastings had the cakes in little plastic cups. It seemed really cheap to me but the cake was the bigger turnoff. Every flavor just tasted like pure sugar, ugh.

    1. Nice looking bourbon glasses though. Man, now I really wish I ate gluten and drank alcohol.
