About Cupcakes

A cupcake is a small cake/muffin intended to serve one person which may be baked in a paper or aluminum cup. The paper or cup forms the shape of the cupcake.

Icing and cake decorations may be applied.

The term cupcake was originally used in the late 19 century for cakes made by ingredients measured by a cupful.

Early cupcakes were baked in teacups before the invention of the multicup pans used today.


I rate this cupcake 3.5 out of 5
