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.
