Babycakes Makes Baking Cupcakes More Convenient, More Stupid

This isn’t really a “new” product–it’s been around since at least this past spring, but it just recently came to our attention. Yes, if you are too impatient to wait the fifteen minutes or so that it takes to bake cupcakes and other small baked goods in a regular old oven, this monotasking, space-hogging glorified George Foreman grill is here to help you expand your waistline.

Cementing its status as an EZ-Bake Oven for grown-ups, it comes in pink. This appliances displaces the countertop turkey fryer as my favorite exemplar of everything that’s wrong with America.
