“As if we needed an excuse” haiku

Devil’s food, pumpkin,
Red velvet or carrot cake
Banana, lemon

Chocolate, vanilla
Coffee and peanut butter
Really can’t go wrong

We’re talking cupcakes
In almost any flavor
A few bites of bliss

Creme inside’s OK
And lay the frosting on thick
For some, that’s the point

Let’s send up a cheer
For National Cupcake Day
Once more with filling!
