A Horrible New Twist on “Beer and a Shot”

The Associated Press reports on what may be the most off-putting new food trend of the 2008 season: frosting shots.

Rather than Jim Beam or even Dirty Girl Scouts, people are—at least according to this article—slamming cake frosting, straight up.

For a small fee, customers get a dollop of their favorite frosting in a paper or plastic cup, about the size of a frozen yogurt sample.

BabyCakes NYC in Manhattan seems to have taken the trend to its classiest possible apex: $1.50 frosting shots served in vintage shot glasses.

Vegans take heart: You too can live the dream.
