Cupcakes have always been everybody's favorite. They are liked and admired by all ages. You won't be able to recall any party that didn't have cupcakes in the dessert section. This is because they are so delicious that no one can resist them and the host takes the best shot on them to satisfy you, but when it comes to attracting children, you have to make efforts in the presentation also and merely making delicious cupcakes won't work.
If you're going to decorate your cupcakes, make sure they have cooled completely. Warm cupcakes can melt your decorations or icing and give them an amateur look. The sky is the limit when decorating your cupcakes. Multi-colored sprinkles or dressage give a festive look without taking much time. Use your imagination and let your creative juices flow when decorating. You may surprise yourself.
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.
The origins of cupcakes are controversial. Some believe that cupcakes were invented by people baking cakes in little teacups, so that the little cakes would not take so long to bake and would cool faster. Others believe that cupcakes were named by the way the ingredients were measured (1 cup of flour, 2 cups of sugar, etc.) Whatever the origin, the cupcake has come down through history as a delightful treat that everyone can enjoy.
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.
