Cupcakes have become popular US dessert

美国人为何如此钟爱纸杯蛋糕?

IT has long been an American tradition that moms bring cupcakes into the classroom to celebrate their children’s birthdays. But it is not just kids that love cupcakes. As it turns out, during the past 20 years, more and more adults have been going crazy for cupcakes. Many cupcake bakeries (
糕点店) have popped up (出现) from coast to coast【从一个海岸到另一个海岸;全国各地】. As The Washington Post put it, it’s now “a love affair (风流韵事;强烈爱好).”

So how did the small, round cakes topped with frosting (
糖霜) become a US dessert【(餐后)甜点】 treasure?

Ruth Reichl, editor-in-chief (
总编) of Gourmet ['g??me?;]  美食家 magazine, explains that “the rise of the cupcake is very much about going back to our national identity in food, which is all about comfort. In tough (艰难的) economic times, people want to think about when they and their country were innocent (天真烂漫的)”, she told USA Today.
As people have had less and less money to spend “during the down economy of the past four years”, cupcakes have become an inexpensive treat, according to The Washington Post.
“For three or four bucks (
美元) you can buy a delicious, amazing cupcake and live like a king,” US TV host Justin Willman told USA Today.
Cupcakes also represent a sense of self. “Cupcakes are a sweet example of what it looks like to be good enough exactly the way you are,” US psychotherapist (
心理治疗医师) Brooke Miller told The Washington Post. She said that they make us feel “like we don’t need to do, eat or prove anything more than what is unwrapped (打开) in this little wrapper包装材料;包装纸 of joy and sugar.”
