There is nothing so revolting as watching a person eat a muffin. These mushroom-shaped pastries are designed in such a way that any attempt to consume them in a graceful manner inevitably leads to a crumbly mess. Morsels break away when biting into the muffin-top lip, forcing the consumer to lift their free hand in a vain and ham-fisted effort to catch the falling bits and then discretely shove them into their mouth like some sort of crumb burglar. It’s disgusting.
Create an imploded muffin-top that allows the consumer to chew around a pastry ring rather than a muffin-top lip. This dish shape would channel any muffin fragments into the dimple of the muffin rather than onto the lap of the consumer.
