“When you look at a cupcake, you’ve got to smile.”

I tend to immediately archive junk mail. Victoria’s Secret, Zappos, AT&T and Urban Outfitters all skip the inbox. If I want an online coupon later, I check the “Shopping” label of my Gmail. For some reason though, I cannot seem to part ways with Sprinkles Cupcakes. It’s ridiculous really; their closest location is all the way in DC so they are wholly unattainable, but for some reason, as soon as I see a “Say It With Sprinkles” email in my inbox, my mouth goes the way of one of Pavlov’s dogs.

Besides the shot of caramel in my coffee, I almost always prefer savory over sweet, but when presented with a cupcake, I can’t resist. In fact, after staring at cupcake salacity for the past ten minutes, this coffee seems wholly insufficient. I may be forced to go home and bake a batch of Funfetti cupcakes.

My StumbleUpon brought this gloriously disgusting image to me: A blog called Filthy Wizardry whose latest post showed how to construct spaghetti hotdogs. The creation dubbed “Squiddlies” are described as eating Halloween for dinner.

Apparently, the bloggers’ kids loved them.

Ice bagels, strange as they may sound, are very real, and a common frozen treat in Japan.

They’re extremely popular at Tokyo’s Bagel & Bagel, a pseudo (re: fake) American export. Check out Why is American Food So Popular in Japan for more info.
