While no one is quite certain where cupcakes came from, it is known that they made an appearance in the United States sometime in the 19th Century. Called Fairy Cakes in the United Kingdom, cupcakes revolutionized how cake was made and mothers across the land lauded the blessing.
Cupcakes are now common in grocery store, pre-made and pre-iced. The baking aisle is filled with a large variety of cupcake papers, beginning with paper thin and progressing to a firm, rounded edge made of cardboard. So popular is the cupcake small artisan bakeries, creating nothing but cupcakes, have begun to spring up across the country. Selling for an average of $30 to $35 a dozen, they are dear, but if you want cupcakes that are head-turning, sometimes paying someone to decorate them in a unique or unusual way is the best way to go. A more recent trend, gaining in popularity, is cupcake towers in lieu of a more traditional wedding cake.
By the 21st century, cupcakes have grown synonymous with birthday celebrations, particularly that of children. The small and personal size of these sweet cakes makes them perfect for children, possessing a dessert that fits perfectly into the palm of one's hand. However, it wasn't long before the adult scene caught onto this viral demand for a personalized cake. After a hit HBO series popularized a Manhattan "cupcakery," niche-driven cupcake joints popped up all across the globe. These treats went from simple and youth-oriented to gourmet and age-unspecified in a hot minute.
