So here is the PieCupen. They call it that because, you see, a pie and a cupcake are joined together in body and spirit. The “en” eludes us.
It comes from Zac Young and Craveable Hospitality Group, the mad scientists behind the PieCaken. It’s available online now for nationwide shipping. So hop to it and schedule your delivery. You’ll get six PieCupens in individual gift boxes, helpful if you’re not limiting yourself to just one Valentine this year.
The thing itself is a chocolate cookie-crusted mini chocolate cream pie baked into a red velvet cupcake. Stop there, and your decadence chart is already showing one of those arrows pointing steeply up and to the right. But then they top it with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and a champagne-filled chocolate truffle. So now your arrow is somewhere off the chart and poking into conference room C. This is getting weird.
But as they say: “Flowers die, diamonds are expensive and a PieCupen is forever.”
Or it’s however long it takes someone to eat it. Probably like two minutes.
So: “Flowers die, diamonds are expensive and a PieCupen is two minutes.”
Rolls right off the tongue.
