Brithday* (for Birthday*)

Cupcakes are not just for birthdays anymore. These trendy little treats come in an endless parade of styles and flavors. They have their own reality shows, beautiful blogs, and boutique bakeries. They make quick mouth-watering snacks as well as serious substitutes for more traditional multi-tiered wedding cakes. Inevitably, we're even seeing a bit of a backlash against the bite-sized baked goods. We found four samples of today's typo in the OhioLINK database and 64 in WorldCat. Whether it's for the church bake sale, your local B'nai Brith, the annual atheist convention, or simply somebody's birthday, may your cupcake runneth over. (And many happy returns of the day today, M!)
