Two of my guilty pleasures are joining forces: Cupcakes and Farmville.
Farmville is the great time-sucking application on Facebook. It is a seemingly simple game which gifts you with a virtual farm, on which you can design your avatar, buy a puppy that will follow you around, and then you can plant and harvest your own crops. I avoid real life tasks I should be doing by planting virtual coffee, lilacs, carrots, and pumpkins.
The game is ridiculously popular. Farmville has over 82.4 million active users. That’s more than 1% of the entire world population. The game started one year ago today, and in celebration of the birthday, the newest crop in Farmville’s lineup is … you guessed it! Cupcakes! I can now plant cupcake seeds, and 8 hours, later, I can harvest them! Could it get any better?
