Cupcake: (noun; proper) Used by Asthmagirl as a term of affection for those she loves. In it's casual form, describes small cake in paper wrapper that is the perfect "after dinner" delight. See phrase "pass the cupcakes, Bubba".
The pub has started offering cupcakes. We have started bringing one home for K3, much to her delight. This is a stout chocolate cupcake, made with the pub's famous No-Doubt Stout ale! The icing is a peppermint creamcheese concoction that is just right... not too sweet and not too runny.
(And yes, I promptly sent my hand model (K3) to the kitchen to wash her hands. Sorry for the goober-y finger... and the hang nail!)
