I can't believe it's been 10 years.  My kids weren't even in KG yet?  LOL!

I was so sad when they deleted that thread.

Did anyone download it?   I really want to see it again.

Since that thread went on for days (or more likely weeks), I think we should have a  whole week of Great Cupcake Kerfuffle Anniversary  goodies! It is like Christmas....you don't just get Christmas cookies on Christmas day...you get them for the whole month of December 🙂

I didn't!  I feel like I am missing out.  Can someone eplain or link or something?

Can't link. It got deleted in the threatened lawsuit kerfluffle that resulted in the rule that we do not post celebrity photos, or photos we do not have rights to.

Explanation: A newish poster posted that they hated homemade cupcakes, etc. being allowed at school parties because of old eggs being used to make the cupcakes. The Hive had a ball posting all kinds of outrageous cupcake photos and taking sides - it was a huge debate with many sides being taken through the twists and turns of the debate. Mischief and mayhem ensued. But mostly, lots and lots of cupcake photos.

Old eggs?

Yes. The cupcake baker might have used eggs that had been sitting in their fridge for 3 weeks. 😂 It really was an epic complaint about nothing. The ridiculousness of the original complaint is what drove The Hive into a frenzy of increasingly ridiculous cupcake photos.

The OP doubled down and kept adding reasons why they were right and everyone who disagreed was wrong.

If anyone has the original thread saved, or if someone can find it on the way back machine, we can see how many days it lasted. We can have an annual celebration, complete with the beginning and ending of an official hive holiday season. 🤣

The more I think about it, the more I like it. The easiest holiday ever! A holiday that you don't have to buy gifts for. You can decorate if you want, but you can use what ever decorations you want (including what is already on your walls!  You get to eat as many cupcakes as you want, share them or give them away. Homemade and store bought are totally acceptable.  We are an very inclusive group forward thinking group, so muffins, cakes (which is really a giant cupcake if you think about it) or really, any other meal made in a cupcake pan is celebratory! Just add sprinkles to your morning pancakes and the celebration has begun!  If you don't like to cook, but saw a cupcake on the internet.....woo hoo! That counts too! 

Come on in and celebrate the Great Cupcake Kerfuffle Hive Holiday Season!

Can someone remind me how the kilts factored in?  I don't remember....

Kilt photos were used to diffuse tension in many threads. There were definitely kilt photos in the cupcake thread. If I remember correctly, there were even kilted cupcakes, and cupcakes decorated like tartans, along with hot men in kilts, eating cupcakes. 😁

Yeah, I remember SEEING them.  I just couldn't remember why they featured so prominently on that thread.  Thanks for reminding me.  I'd forgotten about the tension!  I was pretty uptight in those days.

I have a dozen, unfrosted chocolate cupcakes in the freezer. They are nearly six months old. Perhaps it’s time!

My daughter baked cupcakes the other day.  I think I even ate the last one this morning.  So that means I celebrated, right?

IIRC the cupcake thread was started by a mom who was annoyed by her relative [SIL?], who was a teacher at a school that had rules about goodies that kids could bring for birthdays, but said relative brought rule-breaking cupcakes for her own kid's birthday.  It stuck in the OP's craw!  [I am laughing out loud as I type this.]  There was some back and forth about how annoying sweets in school are, and how wonderful sweets in school are.  It got a bit too melodramatic on both sides, and then people just started joking about it.  It ended up being probably the most creative thread WTM ever had.  Just the amazing variety of cupcake designs.  And the tags!  Really a shame we had to lose that.  I actually used to re-read it from time to time just as a pick-me-up.

Yikes, been a long time! And that Kerry file was after the great "Ken Ham takes on SWB at the Cincinnati Homeschool Convention" which also absolutely epic. Man, we had some legendary threads back in the day.

I miss the days when we could post men in kilt photos. Sadly, too many of them were copyrighted photos so we had to take them all down.

I spent so much time I should have been being productive in those threads back then. We were at that convention! It is still the reason my dh won’t go to the creation museum, he’s such a SWB fanboy 😆

I remember crying with laughter over a picture of Sean Connery in a kilt. A boardie had edited the picture with a thought balloon over his head that read, “Hello lass, are you wondering what’s under my kilt?”
