When times get tough, the tough get fancy. Or something like that. Seriously though, a handle on a cupcake is pretty seriously fancy. I don't think I could maintain that level of fancy for long. I'd end up with a frosting mustache or something.
I love a good culinary "gotcha" every now and again. This one is especially well executed with the matching saucer and the doily and the little floating marshmallows. I know I'd be fooled and delighted!
