Apparently, there is a maneuver that should completely eradicate any of the awkward eating techniques traditionally involved with eating a cupcake. The proper way conveniently offers up the ability to enjoy a cupcake without getting frosting on your face and consequently a proper frosting-to-cake ratio in every bite. How?
Use a couple of your firm fingers, twist off a bottom portion of the cake, and tack it on top of the frosting to make a sandwich. No frosty mess, no bites without frosting, all things good.
