For Your Consideration: Cupcake Edition

It's Friday! How are your challenges going this week?

Take a listen to this interesting and entertaining clip from NPR about the calories in the ever-popular NYC baked good: the cupcake!

Bonus: He also talks about the lengthy - and suspenseful - process of tabulating the calories in Per Se's infamous nine course meal ($275). Wait until you hear how many calories are in this gourmet feast.

On that note, here's a link to Hungry Girl's recipe for vanilla cupcakes! !
