If Frosting Cupcakes Were Left to Dads, Birthday Parties Would Be a Disaster (VIDEO)


mom vs manBefore you had kids, you never imagined that one day you'd be waking up at the crack of dawn to frost cupcakes you stayed up half the night baking, did you? Yup, it's just another one of those crazy things we do as moms, particularly when you maybe sorta forget about making cupcakes to send into school for our child's birthday until the last minute. Hey, it happens!

And we deal. Because we're moms. BUT could the average man accomplish the same fantastic feat? That very question inspired the latest episode of CafeMom Studios' Mom vs. Man with Lauren O'Quinn: Man vs. Cupcake.

And I bet you think know the answer, don't you? I bet you're thinking something along the lines of "Heck no, the average man couldn't accomplish the same fantastic feat! Or maybe he could, but the cupcakes would come out looking like a drunken sailor with a blindfold was the baker!"

Well, you just might be right. But you'll have to check out this video to know for sure. (After watching, give yourself a little pat on the back for all the perfectly presentable cupcakes you've pumped out over the years.)

Could your man win this challenge?

The bakery is my friend.  They turn out perfectly frosted cupcakes.

Nope he would much rather buy them

My point exactly, jessicasmom.  Neither my wife nor I are very good with fancy frosting, so we would buy them.  There is more than one way to get perfectly frosted cupcakes, and I am sure that there are mothers, who, like my wife, are not able to turn out a cupcake with perfect frosting.  Most of these "Mom vs. Man" challenges make me roll my eyes because they seem to presume that men are incapable of doing these things simply because of their gender.

My husband is meticulous when it comes to stuff like that. He doesn't mind frosting cakes, cupcakes, or cookies. He often does a TON better than I do.

there's just too many great chefs that are men out there to continue this sexist viewpoint about cooking/baking. One guy effing it up doesn't represent the millions that would manage it just fine, just as there's millions of women who don't have a clue, as well.
