Cupcakes, in one form or another, have been around for more than 300 years, but their renewed and unsurpassed popularity of the past few years has re-established them not just as a dietary staple, but as a trendy, designer product. Cupcake shops, generally offering nothing else, are here, there, and everywhere, contributing to the love
If you love cupcakes, you must be in cupcake heaven. Every bakery shop, every fast food outlet, every diner, and oh, yea, all those cupcake-only stores, all brimming with delectable selections, with chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, mocha, orange, and raspberry toppings, icings, fillings, and decorations, all just calling your name.
But wait, you can't eat them all the time. You can't eat them at every meal, every day? Or can you? Well, you could, but there would be consequences to pay. You know, a few extra pounds creeping up to maybe, just maybe where a slightly larger pant size might be needed.
What is a Cupcake?
There are actually two very different definitions of "cupcake". First is the traditional definition of the small, single-serving cake, baked in a small tin, paper or aluminum cup. Such small, or "cup" cakes, so named as they were no larger than a tea cup, are traced back to the late 1700s, with the name "cupcake" first documented in an 1828 publication.
A second and far different definition of the term also developed in the baking industry, where recipes for varying types of cakes were measured by either weight or volume. The term "pound" cake came to be used for cake recipes measured by weight, while a cake recipe measured by volume came to be known by several terms, including "quarter" cakes, "1234" cakes, and "cup" cakes.
