This brings us to one final question. Which of the two is cheaper? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this. Here are a few variables to take into account when figuring up the cost for either. How many servings do you need? What does your baker/caterer charge per cupcake? What do they charge per slice of cake? Do they charge more for a variety of flavors? How do you want your guests to be served? How do you want to display your cake or cupcakes? Can you rent a cake or cupcake stand? Would it be more cost affective to purchase a cake or cupcake stand? In general, the opinion seems to be that cupcakes are cheaper!
Prior to the introduction of the cupcake to the kitchens of America, cakes were made by weighing the ingredients. Cupcakes were made by measuring the ingredients for the first time. It has been suggested that this is perhaps where the term "cup cake" originated, since everything was measured in cups. Other origins of the name have also been offered, such as the fact they are baked in a cup but at one time, cupcakes were also called "number cakes". This name originated from the recipe, whereby it required "...once cup butter, two cups sugar, three cups flour, four eggs..." At one time, recipes called for cupcakes to be "...baked into little tins."
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.
