Cupcakes can bring a smile to a lot of faces instantly. Whether you take your cupcakes as a snack or as a dessert is entirely up to you, but a cupcake can serve both the purposes easily. Cupcakes are basically miniature cakes, food experts debate over how the name cupcake came to be. The earliest know mention of such a food item can be found in a book called “American Cookery” by Amelia Simmons, it contained a recipe for a small cake to be baked in a cup. But in the book, the term cupcake is not mentioned, it addresses it as cakes. There are two theories regarding the name cupcake, one says since the cake were to be baked in a cup it was named a cupcake, the other says, since the ingredients can be measured in a cup, hence the name cupcake.
Cupcakes are relatively easier and faster to bake, but they do not lack in taste or flavor at all. Also in comparison with normal cakes, one can enjoy a cupcake at a much cheaper rate, when eating out. However, there are cupcakes that cost quite a bit of money, and these cakes are not just ordinary cakes, some consider them to be a work of art.
