How to Make Hostess Treats At Home

Hostess has long been the king that sits atop a sugary throne of plastic-wrapped baked goods. But after the company announced that they're closing almost all of their distribution centers, we thought it might be a good idea to learn how to make the treats on your own.

The company may no longer host us (couldn't resist!) on a journey towards cakey happiness, but these recipes might help to ward off Twinkie hoarding.

Politics and business aside, I love Hostess Cupcakes because they meant so much to my dad growing up. Recently he told me a story about how he would use his paper route money to buy his favorite treat - a Hostess Cupcake twin-pack and a Nesbitt's orange soda. It inspired me to make a batch for Father's Day this year. RIP Hostess. http://apassionateplate.com/homemade-hostess-cupcakes/

Worse - they also make Beefsteak Rye bread, Wonder Bread, and Drake's Cakes.

I mean $100 million in debt. That's not workers. That by definition is bad management.

They're about $100 million in debt. They'll liquidate, blame it on the unions and their workers not budging, have the debt forgiven, regroup, and buy it back under another name for pennies (or someone will). The main thing is the debt will be forgiven. It's a bit of a joke, really. We're all going to end up paying their debt whether we bought their products or not.
