History of the Cupcake

The earliest mention of the cupcake goes back to 1796 when Amelia Simmons’ American Cookery book described a recipe that called for “a cake to be baked in small cups”. Before the invention of the muffin tin, cupcakes were baked in individual pottery cups, around the size of a teacup. Since then cupcakes have evolved with different ingredients, toppings and styles to become a popular celebratory treat.

DID YOU KNOW?

Due to their small size, cupcakes are more efficient for heat conduction, and therefore bake much faster than a traditional cake. So, if you’re looking for a quick and delicious treat, bake cupcakes.
