We've Been Eating Cupcakes Wrong Our Entire Lives

After changing many lives by enlightening the world on how to properly use a small ketchup cup, Food Beast’s Elie Ayrouth has stumbled upon another game-changing revelation: There is a better way to eat a cupcake

The new and improved way to eat cupcakes creates less mess, but is equally delicious.

It involves cutting the cake portion of the cupcake in half and gently pressing the new layer on top of the frosting. This creates a cupcake sandwich of sorts that prevents frosting from smearing all over the face when one takes a bite.

(A commenter points out that this cupcake-eating method has been in practice for years, but we’re still grateful to Ayrouth for bringing it to our attention again).   

A step-by-step demonstration and video are below:
