Cupcakes can be served as a dessert for an everyday supper, at birthday or special occasion parties, or today can even replace the traditional wedding cake. They are great at baby showers, as Halloween treat give-aways, for Christmas buffet tables, or as a sure money-maker at bake sales and church bazaars. Cupcakes can even be served at masculine events, or at a sports party-like the Superbowl! And, what can be sweeter than a cupcake as an individual Valentine's Day love offering?
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.
Cupcakes are great, but many are wondering how this little birthday and school room treat has come to create such a fuss. Not only are cupcake centric eateries springing up across the country, from home-style Magnolia Bakery on the East Coast to Sprinkles in Beverly Hills, but these once quaint cakes are being served everywhere - even at black tie events!
Party guest see a cupcake, and think "portion control. It is a small cupcake, as opposed to a large slice of cake. Therefore, when one is offered a piece of cake, the "small request" can be eliminated. One doesn't have to verbally single themselves out, requesting a "small piece". The "small piece" request always comes off as if you are trying not to indulge. It's a party, everyone is indulging. The expression is very worn out, old and tired. Three cheers for the cupcake.
Cupcakes are making a surprising reappearance in today's society and are becoming extremely popular and trendy. They are sweet little treats that are easy to make, satisfy everyone's sweet tooth and can be made in various eye-catching ways.
