Q & A Wednesday: A Trick that Takes the Cake!

by Mindy Lockard on July 21, 2009

Birthday cupcakes

Q: I love cupcakes but sometimes find them difficult to eat. Do you have any “how to eat” tips? 

A:  I do love a good cupcake! With this hot wedding and event trend holding its ground, here’s tip to navigate one of the hottest finger foods around! Although this tip is not found in an etiquette book, it’s a fabulous trick that I picked up from my very clever friend Stephanie. As an etiquette consultant my favorite aspect about this trick is that it eliminates unwanted frosting on the nose and engaging in a five finger frosting lick… a desire that is hard on the eyes and ears for those watching us clean-up after ourselves like a four legged feline. My husband, Ty, a huge fan of cupcakes has come out from behind the flip to share Stephanie’s little trick. 

Please excuse the hooping and hollering. We videoed this clip during the garter toss.

Oh my goodness, I thought I was the only one who eats cupcakes like that! 1) I’m relieved to know that this is a Manner’s approved form of eating cupcakes and 2) I am glad that now the world knows how to properly and neatly eat a cupcake thanks to you!

Thank you!
