Bizarre Cupcake News of the Week:
New York City toddler loses teddy bear. Mom puts signs up around the neighborhood, offering a reward of baked goods for Mr. Bear’s rescue. A few days later, Mom finds a picture hanging next to one of her signs. It’s a picture of Mr. Bear, blindfolded. The ransom note demands $10,000 in gluten-free and peanut-free cupcakes. Yes, New Yorkers have a sense of humor, but I hope this doesn’t start a trend. It could give cupcakes a bad rap.
