Originally, “cup cakes” got their name somewhere around the late 19th century because their ingredients began to be measured in cups rather than on a scale. This new method was much simpler, and soon led to the practice of baking small individual cakes in cute little containers — including ramekins and tea cups. (How adorable is that!!!)
Around that time, muffin tins began to appear and bakers soon realized that they could use the pans for more than just muffins. Soon, the cupcake that we know today- was born.
SWEETEN YOUR DAY WITH YOUR VERY OWN-CUPCAKE!-enjoy,aa
