The Next Big Thing: What Happens after Cupcakes?

We love cupcakes. No, seriously, we love cupcakes. But we can't help but wonder, with so many cupcake establishments opening these days, are their days limited? Well, you can never be too cautious so we're humbly submitting some ideas for what could be the next big thing (with thanks to Cake Gumshoe Phil):

Re-Torte: All tortes. All the time. Nary a miniature gateau in sight--a bit of an eff you to the cupcake "man", get it?

Cups N' Muffs:
OK, so this idea still allows for cupcakes, but broadens the scope--a bakery where everything is served in cupcake cups. Cupcakes, muffins...hold on, we're sure we'll think of something else.

A Mere Trifle: Hey, the Anglophile angle has worked for Tea and Sympathy and A Salt and Battery in NYC. Why not have a bakery specializing in that regal dessert?

Pie'd Piper: A pie store specializing not only in pies but that also offers flute lessons. Maybe it would have to be based on the California coast or a hippie commune though, we're not sure who else would go for it.

Blonde on Blonde: A bakery specializing in not brownies, but blondies (fondly known as Skipper to the brownie's Barbie--until now).

Nookie + Cookies: Kind of like Babeland meets Mrs. Fields. You know what? We'll stop there.

OK, so perhaps the world isn't ready for Cakespy's radical ideas. It's just as well, we didn't want to change our name to Tortespy anyway. Vive la cupcake!

There's also "Torte Reform". Across from a court house or law office, of course.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by ReTorte and leaving a comment. This is a great blog and I love the pictures. I like your idea of a place that only serves trifle...I did a post on trifle and it's one of my fave desserts. And you can make trifle about a bazillion different ways, too, so it's totally viable for a business!

I'll add you to my ReTorte blogroll.

Love your blog! Personally, I'm partial to anything served upside down (upside-down cakes, tarte tatins, etc.) I haven't figured out how to spin it yet though.

Dude, the cupcake is totally dead! Check out this article, http://www.fashionista.com/2007/09/death_be_not_proud_the_cupcake.php

Wandering Coyote:Thank you for stopping by Cakespy as well! I am adding you to my "Cake Love" website section. Your creations are just too righteous.

Suki: how about:

Upside Downtown: A hip downtown bakery where everything is upside down-style (pineapple upside down cake, those upside down ice cream cones where the cone is like a hat, etc).

Also, as a side note as a lover of upside down style desserts you might enjoy "upcakes" by Dixie Picnic in NJ!
