Today's forecast: frost(ing) advisory with a chance of sprinkles.

We’ve already celebrated National Chocolate Cupcake Day and National Vanilla Cupcake Day, so we’re a little surprised (but mostly excited) that December 15 is National Cupcake Day, with no specific flavor mandated.

This day goes out to all those other flavors that don’t get as much love as chocolate or vanilla. Banana, carrot cake, peanut butter, lemon, pumpkin, strawberry, red velvet, snozzberry - we're looking at you. Now, go forth and eat.

      Snozberry sounds like something from a Dr. Suess book. I have always wanted to meet Dr. Suess, but he is out of my network and I cannot afford the copay.

      And fwiw, I love the name "Bitchin Kitchen"...I want to work that into conversation today...

        Close. Snozzberries are from the old school Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie. Johnny Depps remake doesn't even come close to doing it justice.
