Video: The best way to eat a cupcake (that you never thought of)

Eating a cupcake is serious business, which is why we asked these pint-sized pros to show us how it's done.

Are you eating a cupcake all wrong? It turns out there’s a smart trick to make sure you don’t end up with just a mouthful—or nose full—of frosting. We thought we’d test out our cupcake technique on our 30th birthday cover shoot models (they didn’t need much convincing). The results are pure cupcake genius, even when things go a little astray. Share with your kids and friends, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
