Cupcake Culture

I was surprised to see cupcakes in a trendy cafe in Södermalm after my cupcake experience in Lund last year. I made cupcakes for my friend Patrick's birthday and brought them over to his student dorm. We shared them with his hall-mates, who insisted on calling them "muffins" and worse, eating them with spoons. Not a single Swede finished a cupcake. Afterwards, more than one person complained to me that "Your muffins have made me feel ill. They are too sweet."
