Calling All Foodies! What Sweet Treat Should Kick The Cupcake’s Ass?

We're not saying they're not delicious. We're not even saying that they don't mend hurt feelings. But we are saying they're hogging the spotlight!
With a plethora of sweet, indulgent treats circulating around the world, why are we only paying attention to cupcakes (and the occasional macaron)? We refuse to believe that from now until the end of time, the only famous — if not stylish — dessert will come topped with buttercream and oozing ganache. We want to know what else excites you, and what else you're dying to see attempted by creative chefs and experimenters alike. Wouldn't it be nice to show up at your next dinner, party, or office event with something new? You tell us: What's the next big thing?
