Are there any Seinfeld fans in da hizzouse?
One of my favorite episodes is The Muffin Tops episode 155 that aired May 8, 1997.
(Dang! I just realized… thats the year I graduated high school! Whoa and now I just totally dated myself but hey you don’t know for sure; maybe I was a child prodigy and graduated at 11? LOL)
SUMMARY: Elaine’s former boss, Mr. Lippman, decides to start a muffin business and Elaine partners up with him. She explains that he should bake the whole muffin but remove the top from the stump and only sell the top b/c the top is the best part. The name of the business is a classic play on words, “Top of the Muffin to You!”. Their business begins to thrive but they are left with massive amounts of muffin stumps so Elaine graciously donates them to the homeless. Only they don’t want them. In fact nobody wants them.
The episode reminds me of my own idiosyncratic cupcake eating habits. I admit, just like Elaine, my favorite part of a cupcake is the frosted top. I rarely eat more than 1-2 of any cupcake I bake and lately its been less b/c I’ve been pulling the frosted top off the stump leaving the stump uneaten. Lucky for me, my husband will eat any part of the cupcake esp if its his favorite, red velvet, as long as there’s some leftover cream cheese frosting to smear on it. So unlike Elaine, I don’t have to deal with a homeless inquisition to get rid of my cupcake stumps. Its win-win! LOL
Question: What would *YOU* do with leftover cupcake stumps?
