Death by Cupcake
A cupcake sounds so innocent: a bright, sugary confection fit for a children's party or afternoon tea. But scrape off the frosting, and you might find something quite different underneath, such as...
...A string of overdoses in people who don't use drugs
...An awful lot of suspects for an accidental death
...Warm puppies and cold blooded killers
...A pet python that knows a jerk when she sees one
...A cupcake-themed beauty pageant that turns...sour
These cupcakes aren't always sweet. In fact, many lead to a sticky end. But only for those who truly deserve it.
So pull up a chair, grab your fork, and help yourself
