18 Cupcakes That Would Almost Definitely Get You To Second Base With Me, If I Were Single


According to the Urban Dictionary definitions I agree with, here’s what second base is:

  • 2nd Base : Feel (The boobies)
  • second base: boob touch
  • 2- feel, or boobedge

Something else for you to think about: “cupcakes” is a slang term for “boobs.”

Okay! Now that we’ve gotten that cleared up, enjoy these cupcake recipes.

  1. Nope, sorry, these are just excessive. A cheesecake? On top of a cupcake? Multiple tiny pancakes??? How do you plan for me to fit that monstrosity in my mouth? I don’t believe you’ve thought this through.

    Betty Crocker and frosting from a can will get you a whole lot farther with me, any day of the week. ;)

  2. #9: “I heard you like cake, so I put a tiny slice of cake on top of your tiny cake.”

    I’ve been meaning to try doing the succulents decorating (but with buttercream, because fondant is gross), but I haven’t found the time. I really need to start baking again. The internet is showing me up.

  3. Aw, I really want to make vulva cupcakes but that kind of seems like coming on a bit strong to get to second base with someone. But I suppose you just know when you’ve met the right person to bake these for.

  4. Vulva cupcakes would have been a gr8 choice for my various “don’t have sex or you’ll get pregnant and die” sex ed classes.

  5. So first time I saw this article I was at work and vaguely saw something about boobs and cupcakes. But got distracted by something work related. This time however I saw instructions to getting to second base with Laura Mandanas and CLICKED IMMEDIATELY. With added cake, what more could I wish for?

  6. Most of these would probs do it for me. But anyone who’d make me Poo cakes probably knows me well. :-D

  7. I made some delicious cupcakes for my mother’s birthday on the weekend. They weren’t all fancy looking like these, just regular chocolate cupcakes, with mint icing (spread on with a knife, because I get irrationally annoyed at cupcakes that have a huge swirl of icing as big as the cupcake itself), decorated with little chocolate hearts & stars. They were very tasty and everyone loved them.

  8. This may be an extremely dumb question, but those pumpkin beer cupcakes–they were made as regular cupcakes and cut down to fit in the little beer mugs, right?

  9. i LOVE all these cupcakes they’re amazing! esp. the cake ones. i do feel a little weird about the idea of letting someone feel my boobs because they made me cupcakes though, which is kinda what i gathered from the title!

  10. this tiny pancakes thing is a revelation. why do we bother making full-sized pancakes that we subsequently have to cut up? I’m going to try that for sure. (No cupcakes though because I don’t own a muffin tin)
