I Ate A Cupcake With...Nat Baldwin




Ed. Note: Allison Cormier is a student at Centenary College where she practices veganism except when eating chocolate treats with prolific indie rockers. FFF has decided to begin covering the eating of these treats, while paying minimal attention to the actual indie rocker present while the treat is eaten. Nat baldwin's most recent album, "Lights Out," has received critical acclaim. Read the Dusted Magazine review here.

ChrisJay: So, do you want to be interviewed?
allison c.: yeah
ChrisJay: So, recently, I hear that you ate a cupcake with Nat Baldwin. Tell me about the cupcake - what was it like?
allison c.: it was a hostess cupcake. chocolate. with the white swirl on the top. on the inside was cream. it came in a package of two which was split between nat and me. we each ate a half of each cupcake.
ChrisJay: how did you approach the eating of the cupcake? Frosty top first, or spongy bottom?
allison c.: the spongy bottom has to be eaten first. you hold the cupcake upside down and pull the cupcake apart starting from the bottom but leaving the top fully intact. it's best to get all of the cream out of the way before one attempts to eat the frost top, which is the best part, undeniably.
ChrisJay:
the funny part is that we don't talk about Nat
allison c.: haha
allison c.: am i doing this right?
ChrisJay: Absolutely
allison c.: ok, cool
ChrisJay: How long did eating the cupcakes take - and is it true that you shared the cupcakes while walking?
allison c.: no, that's a false and viscious rumor that's been spreading. aparently nat couldn't hold out until after we ate gumbo, so the first cupcake was split as a sort of pre-dinner desert, followed by gumbo, and then a post-gumbo cupcake was then split.
ChrisJay: How was that for you?
ChrisJay: That eating order?
ChrisJay: Frustrating?
allison c.: it was absolutely frustrating. i think it's better to have consecutive cupcake halves instead of ruining the moment with a bowl of gumbo sandwiched between what was eventually a whole cupcake between the both of us.
ChrisJay:
Was it a sensual thing, this splitting of the hostess cake?
allison c.: i guess it could be sensual. chocolate is a very sensual food. especially with cream filling.
ChrisJay: Mmmm. Cream filling.
ChrisJay: Did you feel guilty?
allison c.: i did. seeing as i am vegan, it isn't something i usually do. i think, perhaps, that instead of the cupcake we could have chosen an alternative snack, such as celery. however, the cupcake was purchased at a gas station and such places are not known for carrying alternative snacks.
ChrisJay: Looking back on it, if you could change anything about it, what would you change about the cupcake?
allison c.: i don't think there is much you could change about a hostess cupcake. they're moist, they're very delicious, and they've got that wonderful frosty top. i don't think it could be any better
ChrisJay: and nat? do you think he could be any better?
allison c.: i think he'd be great if he'd eat his cupcake starting from the spongy bottom and finishing with the frosty top.
ChrisJay: Thanks for a great premier installment of "I Ate A Cupcake With..." We look forward to next month!

i totally saw those cupcakes sitting on the coffee table! I was like, "i wonder who's cupcakes those are?", and then i proceeded to look at the colors on christy's sick foot. I must've been in the kitchen watching gumbo cook when the cupcakes were consumed, however.

It was my deleted post. The mention of a cupcake made me accidentally post it twice. Sorry.

At least provide your future interviewees with a better grade of cup cakage.

No dudes, we can get the comment tally on this one higher - we have to dream big. I am going to e-mail a link to this to Nat Baldwin, the artist who shared the cupcakes with Allison. Maybe that would push it up...
