The variety of flavors you can use to create a cupcake are varied and many. You can have delicate white cake cupcakes, velvety chocolate cupcakes, light lemony cupcakes, marble-cake cupcakes or many other combinations of flavors. Cupcakes can even have good-for-you ingredients like applesauce, shredded carrots or zucchini in them to help them stay moist.
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.
Speaking of mess, which one of the two would be easier to serve? In this, I am certain cupcakes are hands down, the winner. There is no need to have someone cut and serve, no waiting for all the pieces to be cut, no need to worry about cutting the right size or number of pieces, also no need for dessert plates & forks. Cupcakes make it easy for your guests to serve themselves. They could even be placed individually at everyone's seat, making cupcakes a great wedding or party favor for your guests. Still, some prefer a smaller center cake or cupcake display at each table. This idea can be a money-saver, because it eliminates the need for a floral centerpiece on each table. Cupcakes are also easier to divvy up and send home with family and friends; that is if there are any left!
