Cupcakes are described as
individual cakes that are baked in muffins cups lined with paper or foil
baking cups. They come in a variety of flavors and are usually frosted
with icing and sometimes garnished with sprinkles.
While this definition
sounds about right it does not describe how delightful cupcakes look and
how delicious they taste. As you have probably noticed cupcakes have
taken the country by storm. Bakeries offer us every possible flavor
combination you can imagine.
The name "cupcake" was
used differently back in the 1800s. Then the name "cup cake" simply
referred to a cake where the ingredients were 'measured' not 'weighed'.
It seems that before the 1880s ingredients for cake baking were actually
weighed so when recipes started to be given in 'cup' measurements, the
cake recipes were named 'cup cakes' to reflect this difference. Greg
Patent also tells us in his book 'Baking in America' that a woman named
Mrs. Rorer (in 1902) was the first to actually print a recipe for the
cupcakes (with frosting) we all enjoy today.
