Pitcher Brandon McCarthy, putting together a solid spring for the Dodgers after missing most of the last two seasons with injuries, has a very strong take on the cupcake industry and the intolerable indulgences therein:

After tweeting out that salvo against Big Cupcake earlier this month, McCarthy went on 12News in Arizona Sunday to discuss the rampant "overfrosting" in the industry and to demonstrate how a person should properly consume a cupcake:

He described his ideal frosting-to-cake ratio: "A tiny layer at the top, just enough that you're aware the frosting is there."
And those who prefer a towering head of frosting atop their cupcake: "Deranged people," McCarthy said.
