Cupcakes date back to the 19th Century where they were commonly known as "number cakes." These bite-sized cakes were accounted for according to the number of cups required for the necessary ingredients. Another theory for the origin of the cupcake name is the vessel in which the cakes were baked. Ramekins, tin or small clay cups were said to have contained the essential ingredients for cupcakes upon their initiation. Oddly enough, bakers today still choose to bake these fun treats in the same containers. Further down the line, cupcakes were referred to as "1234 cakes" or "quarter cakes" due to the four ingredients that were required for the recipe. Butter, sugar, flour, and eggs were the essential ingredients for these plain yellow cakes; a lighter and less expensive counterpart to the pound cake. By the 21st century, cupcakes have grown synonymous with birthday celebrations, particularly that of children. The small and personal size of these sweet cakes makes them perfect for children, possessing a dessert that fits perfectly into the palm of one’s hand. However, it wasn’t long before the adult scene caught onto this viral demand for a personalized cake. After a hit HBO series popularized a Manhattan "cupcakery," niche-driven cupcake joints popped up all across the globe. These treats went from simple and youth-oriented to gourmet and age-unspecified in a hot minute.

Supply pencils and texts and let the children color it in. Buy some cupcake fabric and use it as a tablecloth or make little bags for the party favors. There are many cupcake shaped items that you can use as party favors - lip gloss, pencil toppers, stickers. Enjoy your cupcake theme party.

Therefore, when one is offered a piece of cake, the "small request" can be eliminated. One doesn’t have to verbally single themselves out, requesting a "small piece". The "small piece" request always comes off as if you are trying not to indulge. It’s a party, everyone is indulging. The expression is very worn out, old and tired. Three cheers for the cupcake.

Usually cupcakes are baked at 350° F (adjust for high altitude) and for around 23 minutes, give or take a few. Use the toothpick test. As with other cakes, always cool completely before decorating. Loose crumbs should be brushed off gently before icing. Smooth icing with a knife and short strokes. Leave smooth or pipe a frosty swirl on top, depending how you want to decorate.

Some of the most popular cupcake decorations are grated coconut, gum drops, piped flowers and figures, shaved chocolate, whimsical designs created with candies - and of course sprinkles. Filling Cupcakes to fill a cupcake, cut out a cone from the top. Then place a teaspoon of filling inside. Before replacing the top, cut off its cone (since the space it filled is not filled with filling). Cupcake Cakes also called pull-apart cakes, these are perfect for birthday parties and youth events. Each guest pulls off a cupcake. Serving’s a cinch and clean-up’s, well a piece of cake. And a great plus with little ones - everyone gets the same size serving! You can sculpt a cupcake cake into just about any shape you can imagine: numbers (for birthday ages), sports (footballs, team logos and names, etc.) holiday figures, flowers, Easter baskets and bunnies, cats and dogs, well you get the picture. The shape doesn’t have to be exact (and probably won’t), but the decorating will add the realism. Here’s how it works: Bake cupcakes in double liners (for extra strength). Arrange baked cupcakes on a covered, sturdy cake board. Play around with this until you get the shape you want. Staggering works best, and keep them close together. Dab icing onto the bottoms of the cupcake liners, returning them as you do to their original positions. The icing will, once it dries, help hold the cupcakes in position. Crumb-coat. This is optional. Thin some icing or make a glaze. Spread over all the cupcakes. Crumbs will show, but that’s ok. When it dries, the crumbs won’t be swept up into your final coat of icing. When the crumb coat has dried, smooth your regular icing over the whole cupcake cake Decorate.

I know this because my daughter has no problem eating two ice-cream cones- one in each hand! Don’t serve toddlers lemon or carrot cake flavored cupcakes; they may not eat them! Chocolate or vanilla is your best bet for kids cupcakes. 2. Buy special decorating tools. The more tubes and tips you have, the more designs you can make! A basic cupcake and cake decorating set will allow you to make hundreds of different designs. Decorating tools will allow you to make some really fun kids cupcakes that your toddlers will love. You can find decorating tools online or at your local craft store. 3. Use lots of color! Toddlers love everything about color; they love to color and they love to eat anything that is colorful! For instance, have you ever noticed how much kids love Lucky Charms? Guess what their favorite part of the cereal is; the colored marshmallows, of course! If I make a few different colored cupcakes, it seems my toddler always goes for the ones with the most vibrant colored frosting. 4. Remember, toddlers love texture! If you add some kind of candies to your kids cupcakes, there is no way any toddler will leave your side. A yummy cupcake with delicious looking frosting will probably make your cupcakes compelling enough to eat, but the ultimate way to hook your picky eater is to add candies. These rules are not only useful for baking kids cupcakes your toddler will love. Follow my rules and you will have an arsenal of tools and a variety of candies on hand for whatever baking adventure you pursue! Melody A enjoys baking cupcakes, cakes and party planning.
