Cupcake Trend Fading

What Will Be the New Cupcake?

Cupcakes have taken the world by storm and although it seemed like there was no sign of stopping the little cake that could, according to Nation's Restaurant News, the trend could finally be slowing. Food forecasters are predicting that Americans are ready to move onto the next big dessert craze. But what exactly will that be?

There are plenty of options: doughnuts, macarons, mini cupcakes, pie, petit fours, cake balls, whoopie pies, even bacon. OK, that last one was a joke, but really, I want to know your feelings about this. There was a time when I thought macarons would be the new cupcake; however, the French treat is too difficult to make and probably won't go completely mainstream. Can the cupcake actually be replaced? What do you think will be the next cupcake?
