What's in a name? Well, for cupcakes, a lot! Cupcakes date back to the 19th Century where they were commonly known as "number cakes." These bite-sized cakes were accounted for according to the number of cups required for the necessary ingredients. Another theory for the origin of the cupcake name is the vessel in which the cakes were baked. Ramekins, tin or small clay cups were said to have contained the essential ingredients for cupcakes upon their initiation. Oddly enough, bakers today still choose to bake these fun treats in the same containers.
If you and your family cannot resist the unique combo of mint and chocolate, this cupcake is for you. This mouth-watering combination of dark chocolate cupcake and creamy mint frosting shows that chocolate and mint should always be served together. To make this cupcake even more tempting, you can sprinkle some chocolate shavings on top of it.
You can even have filled cupcakes. Doesn't a chocolate cupcake filled with sweet vanilla crème sound fantastic? How about a cupcake with a chocolate 'kiss' treat or a caramel in the centre?
Further down the line, cupcakes were referred to as "1234 cakes" or "quarter cakes" due to the four ingredients that were required for the recipe. Butter, sugar, flour, and eggs were the essential ingredients for these plain yellow cakes; a lighter and less expensive counterpart to the pound cake.
If you are a pineapple lover, you will certainly savor the taste of this classic pineapple cupcake with brown sugar butter cream frosting. No cake lover can resist the combo of brown sugar and syrupy goodness of pineapple. To make it even more tantalizing, garnish it with a cherry on top or sprinkle it with coconut.
