4:00pm chocolate cupcake

05-21 chocolate cupcake
We like this cupcake from Oro Bakery because it's less like the iconic American cupcake with the sugary frosting, and more like a simple cake with a side of whipped cream. And the mocha whip cream is worth writing home about. "Dear Mom and Dad, ..."
Oro Bakery, 375 Broome Street btwn Mulberry and Mott

You've stumbled upon my food writing pet peeve-- "whip cream." This is horribly wrong. "Whip cream" insinuates that the substance is the cream from a whip, where as the correct WHIPPED cream means cream that has been whipped.

You're so right! I was staring at that word yesterday wondering what was wrong with it. And sometimes I think I mix up food names how it's said in Japanese (totally inexcusable). And obviously it's not clot cream either! My pet peeve - mole "sauce"!
