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.
When thinking of weddings or wedding cakes, the two words that come to mind are beautiful & elegant. On the other hand, when thinking of birthdays, baby showers, or graduation cakes, the words fun or cute come to mind. Cupcakes are perfectly suited for all occasions, because they can be both beautiful & elegant but at the same time they are always so cute! There's just something fun or special about having your own mini-cake.
Though cupcakes only recently developed an upsurge in popularity, causing a number of bakeries to specialize in just cupcakes, it was in 1919 when Hostess developed the precursor to the Hostess Chocolate Cupcake. The rich, creamy filling and chocolate icing was popular with consumers and a love affair was begun. Conveniently baked into a single serving, cupcakes provided a quick snack and permitted people to nibble on them whenever they wished. In addition, they were sinfully delicious to but their small size allowed them to feel good about not over eating.
In checking whether cupcakes are already done, you can use a toothpick. Prior to baking, preheat the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. You have to check the cupcakes from time to time to avoid over baking.
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.
