“Be a cupcake in a world full of muffins”

"Be a cupcake in a world (full) of muffins” (or “You are a beautiful cupcake in a world full of muffins") is a saying that has been printed on many images. A cupcake is similar to a muffin, but it has icing on top (and often sprinkles as well). The saying means that it’s okay to be yourself, and a little different from the others. Authorship of the saying is unknown, but it probably came from an image.

A Cupcake In A World Of Muffins
by Mireille Keuroghlian UCLA Dec 10, 2014
There are many variations of the compliment “you are a beautiful cupcake in a world of muffins,” and they all come down to the same thing. Someone is trying to tell you that you are special, you are one of a kind and you should own your stripes and be proud of your uniqueness. Nonetheless, we can all delve a litter deeper in this quote and see how it really is not the compliment we all take it to be. 

Imagine living in a world of muffins and being a cupcake: not just any cupcake, but a beautiful cupcake. First of all, you would be extremely excluded. All the little muffins go to school and spend time together while you are left alone.
