No matter how much you love bagels -- and around here, we love them a lot -- there's a dark truth you must concede: they are not made out of cake & frosting. But no longer must we suffer, because today, the deviant baker behind Reality Bites Cupcakes has righted that horrid culinary wrong. Behold: bagel cupcakes.

At first glance, these magnificent hybrids seem all-bagel, with a golden-brown surface sprinkled with poppy seeds and bisected by the white schmear. But look closer!

See? That's not a bagel with cream cheese... it's fluffy cake covered with vanilla frosting. My God.

You're probably thinking to yourself: self, if I had a bagel cupcake, I'd skip the spread and go straight for a breakfast sandwich. Oh, worry not, kids...

... because Reality Bites can make your bacon/egg/cheese dreams come true...

... or hold the "meat" if you're trying to lose weight. (Though if that's the case, you probably shouldn't eat these at all, because again: they're cupcakes.)

The upstart baker is inventing new cupcake-food doppelgangers by the day (wait 'til you see the Shake Shack cupcakes), and takes custom orders for delivery. Make your crossover junk-food dreams a reality and order up right here.
