Francesca loves cupcakes!

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways . . .

It should seem obvious that one of the myriad reasons that a person may be Super Curvy is that he or she loves to eat. Another reason may be that he or she hates to eat, or rather, hates to cook. Either way, there is no way to extricate our Cushioniness from our relationship with food and exercise, as well as genes and health and hormones and stress and all sorts of other issues we all come here to ignore in favor of fabulous shoes and clothing and wit, oh my!

But there it is, we have to eat, and yet the question of what we eat and how much probably causes most of us no small amount of guilt and shame, whether it should or no.

So Francesca is here to say: IT IS OK TO LOVE FOOD. Loving food, talking about food, cooking food, buying food, and going out to eat food can be a glorious part of life, and does not need to cause embarrassment. You do not have to eat in private or be afraid to openly admit that savoring a fresh neopolitan is one of your favorite pleasures. In fact, savoring the neopolitan bite for bite – really, truly savoring it — is probably a way to eat just one neopolitan, rather than two (or four, as Francesca has done many, many times. And loved. every. single. bite.).

In any case, there is an interesting article in today’s New York Times about cupcakes. Francesca adores cupcakes! Francesca loves all cupcakes, whether from the bakery or the Entenmanns box. She is an equal-opportunity cupcake lover. Do you know what is one of Francesca’s favorite desserts of all time? The St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes of Entenmanns. Yes, it is true. I love licking off that green frosting, and then slowly sucking the chemically-cream frosting out of the crumbly cake. The chocolate topping comes last, always. It is a messy way to eat a cupcake, which is why Francesca performs this sacred ritual only in the presence of Those Who Understand.

Of course, there are also Very Fancy cupcakes being produced every day at specialty bakeries and at the homes of women all over the world who enjoy baking cupcakes as much as Francesca enjoys licking and biting and savoring them. What is better, a cupcake or sex? you ask. Francesca says: Give me a moment to consider.

You can enjoy a daily homage to these tempting treats at one of Francesca’s Top 10 blogs, Cupcakes Take the Cake.

Happy shopping and HAPPY HAPPY eating!
