I’ve started rating restaurants and recipes based on a 5 cupcake scale:
: Drop everything immediately and GO EAT/MAKE THIS NOW.
: Definitely on my short list of “things I’ll dream about eating again.”
: A solid effort with some high notes, but not terribly memorable.
: Meh, no thanks.
: Never again.
Also, because I can’t be limited to just 5 options, I’ve created a handy half cupcake for those “on the fence” ratings.
