Christmas Cupcake Calorie Counting Guide

1.  If no one sees you eat it...it has no calories...zip, nada, zero.

2.  If you drink a diet soda with a cupcake...they cancel each other out. 

3.  If you eat standing up...it doesn't count.

4.  If you eat a personalized cupcake with someone else's name on it...it doesn't count.

5.  Cupcake crumbs stuck to the cupcake cup wrapper contain no calories...all the calories rise to the top and are absorbed in the icing...sucked up in the sprinkles and shrunk to nothingness...no count.

6.  Chocolate Cupcakes are considered medicinal and have no calories.  Other energy/basic food group ingredients include brandy, cheesecake and Blue Bell Ice Cream.

7.  If you share a Cupcake with someone else, the calories don't count if you both eat the same amount.

8.   If you consume Cupcakes while watching Christmas movies, the calorie count is much lower simply because they are part of the entertainment experience and not part of your 'personal fuel'.  You can apply this theory to 'Movie Theater's New Christmas Releases', too....works for Milk Duds,  buttered popcorn, Junior Mints, Snickers and Gummi Bears.

9.  If you are STRESSED out and need relaxing DESSERTS then a Cupcake is perfect for your Christmas Menu...works for me...I can spell backwards and forwards.

10.  If you don't give a BFCC...Big Fat Calorie Count...then this #10 Cupcake Calorie Counting info is for you:
~ 1 White Cupcake with icing has 178 calories....26% Fat...71% Carbs...3% Protein.
~ 1 Chocolate Cupcake with icing 164 calories....28% Fat...68% Carbs...4% Protein...#6 confirmed.

Wonderful explanation of Christmas Cupcakes Calories. I didn't understand it before but now it makes total sense. Merry Christmas

All I saw was the word "protein" - sounds like Christmas Cupcakes Calories are good for you, and surely the sprinkles are an added bonus. Very fun!

Yes, this counting guide is a pretty much a free wheeling guide. I know you and chocolate, so #6 is really the only one that counts.

Sue McPeak said...

So glad to be able to clear that up for you, Ann. To avoid confusion, I stick with #6.

It IS important to get all the protein one can from any of the food groups. Isn't it great that chocolate cupcakes have just enough that eating two or three of them will boost your protein count and energy level. What a great STRESS reliever.

The minute I read the title, I knew this was going to be good! Cheers! And so that you know, one cupcake has been consumed in your honor. Merry Christmas!

Sue McPeak said...

How nice of you...I AM honored, and since it had SUE on it, we both benefit from #4. Yay! Merry Christmas, Wendy!
