With the McCafé, McDonalds proved it could cater to yuppie tastes. And with the Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait, we saw that the chain could achieve dainty. The next logical step? Cutesy.

A red velvet McCupcake with golden-arches yellow frosting would show the world that McDonalds can keep up with trends in the world of baked goods. And adults would finally have an excuse to top off their mac ’n cheese meals the way they did as seven-year-olds.
