Food Fashions: From Cupcakes to Macarons



My friend baked some of these delicious Pistachio Macarons recently and it got me thinking about food fashions. A few years ago everyone was all over cupcakes like a rash. Some people are still having cupcake pyramids (and such) at their weddings. I prefer the idea of a ‘cheese cake’ (wedding cake made from a selection of cheeses but made to look like ‘normal cake’) – yum. For the past year, or maybe slightly more, everyone is obsessing over Macarons. Also, who do you know that hasn’t been for afternoon tea? You can get afternoon tea for £10 each on the high street now. How has this happened?

Apparently, cupcakes became fashionable after they appeared on an episode of Sex and the City. Macarons then featured on Gossip Girl.

Does everyone else think drinking coffee has an air of charm just because of Friends? Or was it just as trendy before the popular American show?

It just makes you wonder what’s next. Will it be Spam sandwiches or carrot juice? If you want to be ahead of the game, I suggest you keep well up to date with all popular American TV shows with a primarily female audience. Vampire Diaries here I come…sigh.
