Please, not another effing cupcake store

I just can’t do it.  I like cupcakes, I do. They are snack-sized, have a multitude of frosting/cake options, you can make them resemble animals, people, hello-kitty Japanese creatures and things (exhibit cupcake-milano-dog-bear).

But little hipster chefs of the world, why the neglect of other dessert snacks? Why not a pie shop, a pastry shop, a scone and muffin boutique, a cookie stand with a different accompanying milkshake of the day? Honestly, now that I think about it, why not just a delicious, good old fashioned bakery??  Snacks aren’t clothes you know, a damn fine chocolate shake will always be in style. So my hipster, I think you should open a delicious pie shop in DC, near me, because I am lazy. My reasons are…

1. You could dress in a retro outfit (a la Mad Men), like this:

2. You could have seasonal pies, thereby buying seasonal produce, thereby not contributing to the global food industrial machine that is ruining our trees and children. You know, from a local market like this:

3. You could use an industrial space with nice vintage decorations, like this

4. You could name all your pies using witty puns, like….Pie Fair Lady, Vice President Pieden, Pievel goes West, Undercover Pie, you get it.

5. Pies are DELICIOUS.

I expect a pie shop by the end of the next fiscal year. I am sure Georgetown Cupcake, Hello Cupcake, Couture Cupcakes, Crave Cupcakery, Le Cupcake, and Bakeshop won’t mind.

    There could be a special sale on Pi Day (March 14).

  2. Great idea! Great blog! &make the pies small & bitesize just like the nemesis pastry against which they will so successfully compete.
