Cupcakes are very popular and I know why. Lots of people like cakes at birthday parties but as you just heard they are a lot to handle. So what some people do is take a lot of cupcakes and make them into one big cake, with frosting. Instead of having one particular flavor you can have a variety and everybody will be happy. cupcakes are perfect for any occasion, from a two year old birthday party to the fanciest of weddings. Cupcakes are so popular they have a whole show dedicated to them.
Did you ever wonder how the cupcake got their name, because I have wondered once and a while. The first theory is that cupcakes were made in cup. Meaning that they would put all of the ingredients in a cup and put it into the oven to bake. The second theory is that all of the ingredients were measured by the cup, (a measuring cup). For example, One cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, four eggs, one cup of milk, and one spoonful of soda. (
of course). This was the first cupcake recipe ever! Lots of people like cupcakes better than regular cakes because their easier to work around. Lots of people would get big cakes and never finish them they would either have to put them in the fridge\freezer or, they would have to throw the cake out because it was just too much. Cupcakes are much easier to work around.
